The European Union: One Big Happy Dysfunctional Family
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on Europe's Quest for Unity With increasing globalization putting economic pressure upon individual countries, Europe is at a crossroads. Nations in Europe are struggling with the concept with a totally unified continent. This unit on the European Union is intended to make students aware of the factors influencing the idea of unity and the very real problems that face the individual countries whether they do or do not unite. Europe's economic future affects not only the continent itself, but the United States and world economies. Whichever way Europe goes, students need to be aware of the EU and how it affects our global community.
