For next year’s senior class, a new social studies elective will be offered: AP Microeconomics. According to the AP website, AP Microeconomics “places particular emphasis on the study of national income and price-level determination; it also develops students’ familiarity with economic performance measures, the financial sector, stabilization policies, economic growth, and international economics.” AP Microeconomics will be taught by Mr. Jeff Fix, and while it is not a new class to BSM, it is being brought back for the first time in many years. “I think students can most look forward to a class that is engaging and is pretty hands-on when it comes to learning the curriculum. The class will also lend itself to a lot of discussion about economic concepts and principles,” Fix said.
