I, We, and Europe- Book for the pupil
Written and illustrated by: Mariza Dekastro
Artistic editing by: Rachel Balestra
This is mainly a book of activities and exercises for European civic education. Their goal is the cultivation of the European identity, the formation of democratic models of social behavior, the promotion of independence, responsibility and self-respect for young people through a grid of knowledge and skills that will give them the necessary tools to participate in the future, as active citizens of their country, in the European society. An important component in the efforts to develop the feeling of belonging to the European Union is putting emphasis on the common values, on the history and civilization of Europe, and on learning about its social and political concepts and its structures. In the 22 brief chapters of the book, the pupils have the opportunity to learn about those components of the European Union that pertain to them, as children, youngsters, and future active citizens, and, in addition, to combine these components with issues that refer to the entire body of educational materials and books that they use in all their classes.
