The Institute for European Studies is dedicated to helping teachers and students discover Europe and the European Union. EURO offers a variety of professional development opportunities and classroom resources for educators.
What we can do for YOU:
With funding through EURO curriculum development grants, lesson plans designed by and for teachers for grades 6-12 are available in a variety of disciplines.
EURO regularly offers workshops for secondary school teachers in two primary areas: current European issues and the study of European languages. Interactive workshops inform educators of available classroom resources and new ideas for teaching European languages, culture, and society.
EURO offers multiple ways for IU faculty, staff, and students to speak to your class. European experts can provide presentations on a topic of your choice to your classroom in person (generally within 30 miles of Bloomington). For schools farther away, we offer distance learning programs using interactive video technology to connect K-12 classrooms with IU specialists. If you have a specific topic in mind, please contact International Studies in Schools with a request, or visit our list of prepared presentations. Please contact EURO to discuss any of these program options.
