EU Toolkits - Lessons & Resources
The Center for European Studies at UNC-CH is proud to present the Teaching the EU Toolkits. CES has a 20-year history of providing outreach materials and professional development on contemporary Europe. During this time, we have discovered that although there is much interest in teaching Europe, most resources are historic in nature, and do not allow students to fully grasp the rich cultures, languages, people, and politics of today’s Europe, Europeans, and the European Union. This project was generously funded by a Getting to Know Europe grant from the Delegation of the European Union to the US in Washington, DC. To learn more about all the resources the Center offers, please visit our home page at europe.unc.edu.
EU Toolkits contain lessons and resources for elementary, middle, and high school students to learn about Europe and the EU.
