Europe in the Classroom

European Union Curriculum Development

Workshop for High School Teachers

Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012

Norfolk Sheraton - Waterside

Claremont Room

9:00 AM - 4:30 PM


Why should we care about Europe? Why does the European financial crisis matter to us?

Is there a European Culture? Is the European Union relevant to the US?  

Are we competitors or allies? Can we learn from each other?


If you are intrigued by these questions, this workshop is for you!


The workshop prepares high school teachers in Social Studies, World History,

European History, European Politics, Geography, Economics, and Government to infuse

current information on Europe, the European Union and Transatlantic Relations into the classroom.


Teachers receive multi-media instructional resource kits appropriate for their disciplines

and continuing education credits through Old Dominion University’s Center for Economic Education.



Registration Deadline Feb.10, 2012.



This workshop is part of the European Union sponsored ACCESSEU Project at Old Dominion University.
