Since 2005, the European Union Center has organized in-person and virtual summer curriculum workshops designed for K-12 and community college educators to develop a more effective curriculum on the European Union. These materials may be incorporated into a variety of courses, such as foreign language, world geography, world cultures, world/US history, politics, economics, science, and business. While all K-16 educators are welcome, the curriculum materials are geared mainly towards high school and community college education. The 2021 summer curriculum workshop will feature lectures and lesson planning strategy sessions presented by university faculty and experienced K-12 teachers. Session topics include the economics of climate change; running a world climate simulation using the C-ROADS computer model; and strategies for incorporating climate science into the curriculum.
