Bulgaria, Romania, and Poland: Case Studies of a Changing Region. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminar Abroad 1996 (Bulgaria and Romania).
This paper presents a unit for government and economics and one for world history on the dramatic regional changes which have occurred in Central and Eastern Europe since the late 1980s. The units can be taught cohesively covering 2-3 weeks or as modules integrated into relevant themes in the curriculum. The "case studies" approach allows students to analyze and compare the struggles facing the nations. The government and economics lesson contains modules on: (1) "Comparative Systems"; (2) "Emerging Democracies"; (3) "Cultural Aspects"; (4) "Immigration"; (5) "Role of International Organizations"; and (6) "Social Justice." Portfolio assignments are used for evaluation of the units. World history modules include: (1) "Roman Empire"; (2) "Byzantine Empire"; (3) "Scientific Revolution"; (4) "World War I"; and (5) "World War II." (EH)
