Survival Economics:  Survival Economics is based on the Economic Education and Financial Literacy (EEFL) Objectives that are required for all Virginia students. This course is designed to provide students with the basic skills and knowledge needed to effectively manage their personal finances as well as the decision-making skills they will need to become well-informed consumers, savers, investors, money managers, and members of our global economy. Students will incorporate hands-on activities, writing assignments and discussions into a curriculum that includes the fundamental principles of economics, consumer rights and responsibilities, and an evaluation of financial opportunities including credit card and loan offers. An emphasis on the practical application of financial concepts will help students to prepare for these situations in their own life experiences.
