Center for Study of Europe at BYU hosts high school teacher training in July

Brigham Young University’s Center for the Study of Europe will host a high school teacher training seminar July 18, 20 and 22 in 257 Herald R. Clark Building.

The title of the seminar is “My Country Europe: Explorations of European Identity.”

The seminar is open to the public, and teachers may choose to receive either 1.0 or .5 hours of BYU credit toward recertification or professional lane changes.

BYU professors and outside experts will present lectures, activities and reviews of teaching resources. The presenters will come from various academic disciplines, including French and Italian, history, philosophy and political science.

Activities will include an Irish folk dance performance, a presentation on using library resources at BYU and the unveiling of CultureKits produced by the Center for the Study of Europe. These country-specific multimedia kits are designed to help educators actively engage students in the study of European culture.

The workshop is being funded by a grant from the Delegation of the European Commission.
