2012 Teachers' Workshop

South Bend: March 30

This workshop introduces teachers to the governmental institutions of the EU and to their history and relationship vis-à-vis individual member states. Topical discussions on EU institutions, policies, and why and how the EU is relevant to the Midwest will be presented in the morning. The afternoon session will be devoted to a model European Council exercise, with each teacher representing a particular EU member country. Presentations will stress the interdisciplinary nature of EU studies—economics, environment, geography, globalization, government, languages and culture, etc.
