NATO and Russia. Grade 10 Lesson. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
This lesson plan imagines the student as part of a delegation to a special meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)-sponsored Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council being held in Brussels, Belgium, where the topic of discussion is a proposal by several NATO members to invite independent republics of the former Soviet Union to become permanent members of NATO. According to the lesson, the Russian delegation will make a strong objection to the proposal, seeing it as a way for NATO countries to expand their political, economic, and military influence at the expense of Russia's weakened position. Students must represent their nation's best interests and at the same time create a positive climate that will insure peace and security for all nations involved. Students are provided with background information, detailed instructions, online resources, and reflection questions. The teacher's notes describe the unit's purpose, explain the unit's correlation to history/social science and language arts standards, and suggest teaching strategies. (BT)
