Cooperation and Community: The European Community--A Community of Nations. A Curriculum Unit Recommended for Grades 6-9.
Steinbeck, Reinhold
This resource packet introduces students to the notion of community within a European context. Students examine the European Community as a community of independent countries and will become aware of some of the key characteristics of a community. The eight activities focus on developing multiple perspectives through the analysis of European integration and diversity. The eight activities include: (1) "Cooperation and Community"; (2) "The Concept of Community"; (3) "National Anthems and Music of European Countries"; (4) "Money Makes the World Go Around"; (5) "Caught between Two Cultures"; (6) "Newcomers at the Gate"; (7) "Fighting Problems Collectively"; and (8) "Decision Making and the European Community." Each lesson contains supplementary handouts and support materials. Several primary documents are incorporated into the lessons to present students with a range of perspectives on the topic being studied. Activities address a variety of multiple abilities, including analytical, visual/spatial, musical, and dramatic abilities. (EH)
