From the CTY Course Catalog (1997):
In this course, students gain a complex understanding of the foundations of Europe social, economic, cultural, and political. Through lectures, readings, discussions, group projects and presentations, and simulations of critical events, the class surveys the major topics of European history from the eighteenth century to the present. Working with selected primary documents and literary sources, students learn to evaluate historical evidence critically and to present arguments grounded on that evidence, both in discussion and in writing. Special emphasis is placed on developing fluency in oral and written argumentation.
Euro was taught by the legendary Dr. Dan Allen (affectionatly D.A.), a great teacher who has been around since before even the IAAY name was used.
