Steinbeck, Reinhold; And Others
This unit introduces students to the concept of community in general and how individual entities cooperate to make decisions. By examining historical events that led to the formation of the European Community, students are introduced to a community in an international context. The six lessons include: (1) "Cooperation and Community"; (2) "An Evolving Community"; (3) "Decision-making Institutions of the European Union"; (4) "Cooperation Around Environmental Issues"; (5) "Admission of a New Member State-The Cases of Norway and the Czech Republic"; and (6) "The European Union: Visions for the Future." The document concludes with four appendices: a description of the European Union, a discussion of cooperative learning and the jigsaw approach, a list of frequently asked questions, and an extensive resource list.
