August Webinar: Teaching the EU Virtually

Colin Baker has taught AP European History at Blacksburg High School Virginia for the past 20 years, moving from Scotland having graduated from Edinburgh University (at a very young age). He’s the current College Board AP Euro Development Committee Co-Chair and an Exam Leader at AP Readings, and enjoys producing online resources for AP Euro teachers. He has been fortunate to have been involved with three international grant research opportunities to Europe which, along with College Board work, has led to conference presentations around the country. Current work includes running mock-EU Councils for high school students in cooperation with VT and UNC following on from a study tour of the EU in Brussels last summer. Married with two active younger teens he’s gained a new appreciation for parenting during a lock-down.
