ONE OF THE NICEST AND MOST IMPORTANT WEBSOURCE OF OFFICIAL EU PUBLICATIONS AND "EUROPE IN 12 LESSONS" BOOKLET

LET'S GO!

STEP 1

Let's discover the official WEBSITE "EUPUBLICATIONS" which is continuously updated and publications cover all the topics of the world, are in different languages and could be good tools to learn and teach. Since one year ago it was called "EU Bookshop", now is officially "EU publications"

https://publications.europa.eu/en/home

STEP 2

Now let's discover ONE IMPORTANT publication, considered the base to learn about Europe: "Europe in 12 lessons". 

There's a new version finished in 2016 but the author remained the same as in the past and it's a very important person. Mr Pascal Fontaine, collaborator of Jean Monnet and Lecturer at the Paris Institut d’Études Politiques and at the École Polytechnique. Nowadays also called "the inspirator" of the French political and economic adviser. 

THE LAST EDITION!

Focus on the covers of each lesson and share with your students the "key words" and the main concepts, like.... 

PEACE - VALUES - SOLIDARITY - DEMOCRACY

TOGETHER - COOPERATION - IDENTITY ETC....

STEP 3 - PRACTICE IN CLASSROOM

Activity 1 - Module 2

It's required at the beginning: 

you can decide to make a video based on this publication so just mention the main titles of the 12 lessons so how is structured, without going deeply in the arguments which are too much complex and difficult for children and explore the most important concepts reflecting with your students on the meaning and teach especially this outcomes: 

Why the first idea of European Union wanted to bring PEACE?

Which are the main values?

Is the European Union an organization or an institution or a Union of different Member States TOGETHER to be stronger and assure RIGHTS to its citizens?

Is it positive or negative to be a EUROPEAN CITIZEN?

An added suggestion...optional 

Videomaking is nice also when children go home and interview parents, in English maybe, and demonstrate them what they are learning but also ask them what's their opinion on the European Union. 

This activity can be risky if parents are really against but can be nice if parents understand that their children are learning the basic positive values for which this great "Project" was born and how today we are loosing them due to an increasing growing of other bad phenomenas like racism, violence, xenophobia, bullying
