Teaching About the American Impact on Europe.
Den Hollander, A. J. N.; And Others
Included in this Atlantic Information Centre for Teachers report from a November 1969 seminar for secondary school teachers are the papers presented and brief summaries of the discussions which followed each lecture. Papers express the participant's views and identify some principles and techniques for utilization in secondary schools. It is important for social studies teachers to understand present-day transatlantic interdependence. Major emphasis is upon how the teacher can present to secondary students various historical and contemporary aspects of United States influence on Europe and how schools can provide these students with intellectual tools to understand the world as it changes. Titles under which ideas are presented include: The Socio-Cultural Impact of America on Europe; Problems of the Atlantic Economy; The American Involvement in European Security: The Impact of U. S. Foreign Policy on Europe; Symposium on the Teaching of American History; America in the Classroom: American Studies in British Schools; An American Point of View; and Comments on the Seminar. Lastly, there are several sections with source materials for the teacher and addresses for teaching aid and information. (Author/SJM)
