Understanding the European Union (EU)

Understanding the European Union (EU)

A short PowerPoint presentation that can be used for one lesson and is mainly useful for providing a background on the European Union. It can help provide students an overview of why the EU was created and it explains the treaties that are significant for the functioning of the EU. It also includes a few engaging activities that will help students understand the content of the presentation. This presentation works great along with a presentation I made on Brexit, that can be found on the following link: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/brexit-examining-the-economic-and-political-aspects-11686242. The presentation addresses the following learning outcomes: Identify the formal structure of the EU; Recall several treaties relevant to the formation of the EU; Understand relevant trends to the further evolution of the EU; Identify key areas of cooperation for EU member-states; Identify key concerns in the further development of the EU.

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. There are THREE more FREE crosswords based on cities and countries around the world. The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a great activity for supporting literacy, logic, and research skills. It quietly helps students with handwriting issues and it sneakily encourages students to learn more about their word and to discuss why... Why? Why did the UN impose more sanctions on North Korea? Why did Russia suggest UN peacekeepers for Crimea? Why are Australian landowners encouraging Australians to eat kangaroos? And why is Amsterdam's government wanting to discourage tourism? These are just some of the discussions that will pop out of this week's crossword. Or maybe they'll ask where? Where is Lahore? Sri Lanka? New Zealand? South Africa? Myanmar? North Korea? Paris? Barcelona? Crimea? It's a pdf so it can be downloaded quickly, saved to a flash drive, opened and printed quickly for use at a moment's notice.
