This survey course of the main themes in the history of various European countries since prehistory offers a multidisciplinary introduction to Europe and its various regions/countries, introducing various historical, cultural, and political perspectives to young learners. The course also focuses on how the development of Europe has impacted today's world. Every week Dr. Brezina will offer an initial understanding of the history of a unique European country (see the list below). Weekly...
This class has two specific goals. One is to provide students with basic factual knowledge of the history of various European countries and their people. Second, I hope to make learning about Europe fun through an engaging and interactive discussion-based format.
Dr. Brezina taught European history at various university prep schools in Europe and the United States and as well as at several American colleges and universities.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The study of the history of European countries deals generally with some sensitive topics in history such as war, civil war, and other conflicts. Dr. Brezina takes a great care to present the content in an age-appropriate manner.
There are many sources that are used for teaching the history of European countries in this course. Dr. Brezina studied various primary and secondary sources (articles, books, dissertations, etc.) during his years as a teacher and professor of history that will allow him to interpret the European history objectively and address the full range of a variety of peoples' histories and historical perspectives. For example, he will draw from these books: A History of Europe by Norman Davies, A History of Modern Europe by John Merriman, Central Europe by Lonnie R. Johnson, Europe by Brendan Simms, Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945 by Tony Judt, Dark Continent: Europe's Twentieth Century by Mark Mazower, etc. (However, Dr. Brezina does not require students to purchase or use these books.)
