- EU Brexit - Reading

European Union Research Rubric DUE May 13th with your sketch maps of Europe

You have been assigned a country that you will be representing at the next meeting of the European Union. Most of the countries are current members of the European Union however; three of them are not members of the EU but would like to join. Over the course of the next week you will be putting together a 3 Minute iMovie to tell the other members about your country and remind them of your importance in the EU or explain why they should allow you to join. Think of this as a political advertisement for your country. Use imagery that supports the EU goals and values.

 After all countries have presented their information we will discuss and then vote on admission of the three countries. You will base your vote on how the admission of the other countries will affect your country (positively or negatively). Be prepared to defend your vote.

 Your research is critical and the success of this project depends on EVERYONE doing their part and being prepared to present on time and with all information complete.

 Your presentation, done as either an iMovie, keynote presentation or a Google slides presentation, MUST include the following things.

 ______ the name of the country

 ______ the flag of the country

______ a map of the country

 ______ a map of Europe with your country highlighted

 ______ a description of the human and physical geography

 ______ facts about the country (population, size in square miles, official languages, top 3 import partners and top 3 export partners)

 ______ facts about the government (capital city, type of government, current leader)

 ______ facts about EU membership (when this country became a member, currency and are they a member of the Eurozone, are they a member of the Schengen area, how many seats in the European Parliament)

 ______ a brief overview (what facts are important for us to know) and history of the country

 ______ a brief review of current events

 ______ an explanation of why being a part of the EU has helped or hurt (in some cases both) your country. Or, if they are not a member of the EU yet why it would benefit or possibly hurt this country.

 Each item is worth 9 points.

 Anything additional will be considered for extra credit but only if all of the other information is included.
