GENERAL EUROPEAN UNION RESOURCES
The European Union
The official website of the European Union. Offered in 20 different languages, this website is a treasure for all teachers.
European Union Centers of Excellence
The Network of European Union Centers of Excellence comprises ten research universities around the United States. Funded by the European Commission, the group is dedicated to advancing the study of the European Union as an international actor.
There are numerous educational resources available from the EUCE 10. Among their most requested offerings are course syllabi for college courses and pedagogical materials for K-12 teachers. In addition, they have a listing of online sites and features that explore specific EU political, social, and cultural issues.
Center for European Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
As a National Resource Center funded by Title VI grants and as a European Union Center of Excellence funded by the European Commission, the Center for European Studies disseminates knowledge about contemporary Europe throughout the university and in outreach programs with public schools.
European Union Centers of Excellence -- EU Lesson Plans for K-12 Teachers
U.S. teachers looking to expand and deepen their classroom coverage of the European Union can now download cutting-edge lesson plans created by teachers for teachers. The searchable database is also arranged by subject and grade level, and includes several multimedia features. Bring your European view into the 21st century with curriculum guides focused on environmental policy, immigration issues, economic integration, and contemporary society. Even better, many of the lesson plans on this national site were created by North Carolina's own teachers in August 2006, so they even reference the goals of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study!
