Curriculum Modules

The Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies works in collaboration with the UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project and the Office of Resources for International and Area Studies to provide curriculum modules for K-14 educators with a designated emphasis on the California State education standards. Both programs are interdisciplinary and multi-regional. The following list of modules is specific to our world region: Russia, Eastern European, and Central Asia; however, there are many resources at many different grade levels focusing on various world regions. ISEEES seeks to provide readily available course content to enhance the learning experience in classrooms both near and far.
