New AP Economics Teacher Guides & Student Workbooks

Council for Economic Education is pleased to announce the release of their 5th Edition of AP Economics Macro and Micro Teacher and Student Editions. These CEE bestsellers feature expanded and updated content to match the College Board course and exam. The 5th Edition will be available for 15% off from now until September 30, 2023.

The AP Macroeconomics and AP Microeconomics books are written by AP teachers for AP teachers. They are specifically designed to work in conjunction with an AP-level economics textbook. The Teacher Guide offers unit overviews, well-structured lesson plans, visual aids, and answers to student activities. It allows teachers to supplement student learning and help them excel in their AP exams. The Student Workbook works alongside the Teacher Guide by offering vital concepts and interactive activities.

What has been updated in the latest editions?

Every lesson in Micro and Macro has been updated to match today’s CED (Course and Exam Description from the College Board) and are in accordance with the Voluntary National Content Standards in Economics. Six new lessons have been added to each edition, with every unit offering students a set of practice multiple-choice questions.

“We want young people to be excited about learning economics, and that starts with high quality materials for teachers and tons of practice problems for students to ace their AP exams,” said Nan J. Morrison, CEE president and chief executive officer. “We are grateful to the expert educators who helped make this new edition align with the College Board’s exam updates. These new lessons make it easier for students to succeed on their exams and we hope that makes them want to take more economics classes so they can understand how economics will help them in the real world too!”

While AP economics courses are offered in many schools across the country, even basic economics education remains elusive to many students. According to CEE’s biennial Survey of the States, only half the states require students to take an economics course before graduating.
