Teaching Today's Europe

Bring Europe into your classroom! CES offers many excellent resources for educators at all levels, from seminars and workshops, to lesson plans, to interactive websites.

The UNC Center for European Studies offers a myriad of resources for educators, including K-14 lesson plans, a fully funded study trip to Brussels, business briefs on current issues and more. Our newest lesson plans, the Teaching the EU Toolkits, are aligned to Common Core standards, and contain supplemental resources for K-12 teachers and students. We emphasize resources for teaching contemporary Europe not only for traditional social studies, but across all disciplines to help students and teachers process current global and local events, by making connections between Europe and our own contexts and situations. Check back soon for more professional development resources to help educators incorporate the study of today's Europe to promote equity and diversity in the classroom!
