Teaching about the New Europe and the New Germany in American Teacher Education Programs.
Wegner, Gregory P.
Teacher education programs of U.S. universities hold great potential for promoting new ways of thinking about the formation of a united Germany and its future role in Europe. These programs are important because they influence teacher candidates as to how they will teach about the New Europe. Three recommendations are offered to expand the understanding of the New Europe in the social studies curriculum to the benefit U.S. citizens. These recommendations include: teacher candidates should know and understand the unique historical contributions of East Germany, and Eastern Europe and Western Europe should be considered within the larger context of the New Europe and the world economic community. An 8-item list of sources are included, as are materials concerning the New Europe. (DB)
