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.
