Students and parents must understand up front that this is a college level class.   As such, students will be expected to spend a great deal more time on this class than they would in an ordinary class.  The very nature of the economics makes it almost like a foreign language.  It is very important for the student to work on economics daily or they will ultimately get behind and will not be able to catch up.  Students must be prepared to follow outline notes from internet.   In doing so you will have to follow along as I show you the graphs.   On the AP exam you will be expected to generate, interpret, label, and analyze graphs, charts, and data to describe and explain economic concepts.
