AP Econ Blogs – the list begins

Published by at 8:17 am under AP Economics,Education,Teaching,Technology

The other day I sent an email out to AP Econ teachers around the world asking if they were using blogs in their classes. In just 48 hours I’ve heard back from several teachers about their class blogs. A quick glance revealed some really interesting uses of the blog as a tool for teaching Econ. I’ve created a link list to AP Econ blogs that can be found on the right tool bar. As I hear from more AP Econ teachers, I will continue to update this list. I hope that next year, AP Econ students around the world can become more connected via their class blogs and maybe even their individual Economics blogs. Here’s what I’ve collected so far.

Bonaconomics – East Hampton HS, NY For students of Economics at East Hapton HS
Mikeroeconomics – Muscatine HS, Iowa This blog is for my application of economics to everyday topics.
The Circular Flow – Powell Center for Economic Literacy
The Circular Flow is my take on world events and an attempt to get
people to apply an “Economic Way of Thinking” to the news of the day.
Walker Economics Blog – The Walker School, Georgia A blog for my AP Economics class to discuss economics-related current issues and news.

If you know of an AP Econ blog that we could add to this list, please post a comment with a link so I can add it to my list.
