This institute provides teachers with content material, classroom resources, and teaching strategies for interdisciplinary teaching about the cultural, economic, physical, and political geographies of Central and Eastern Europe. We will examine the changing roles of the countries in the region (including the Baltic and Balkan nations) in shaping 21st century Europe. Is this region merely a buffer zone between Western Europe and Russia's expansions back into Ukraine and other former Soviet Satellite countries? Or is it the economic and political engine that will revitalize the European Union? Along the way, we'll explore the landscapes, cultures, and peoples of this beautiful but under-appreciated part of the continent.
Institute presenters will include scholars and teacher-experts.
