European Union Brochure
To join or not tojoin, that is the question.
The European Union (EU) has been growing for over 15 years. However, some nations resist joining or try to limit the role of the EU due to Euroskepticism, nationalism, or fear of loss of sovereignty. Your task is to create a brochure to convince a nation to either join the EU or not join the EU. In your brochure address the history, functions, and characteristics ofthe EU and evaluate its benefits or detriments on member nations. You should take the position you support and convince me that this is best option. (50 points)
1. Each student will design a brochure that argues for continued growth of EU membership or for Euroskepticism and reduced power and influence of this supranational organization.

• Brief overview of the history of the EU including the year formed treaty of formation, and member nations.
• Listing influence of EU membership (including political and economic components)

• Listing of the benefits or detriments of EUmembership.
• Clear evaluation/analysis of your argument on the EU for continued growth of membership to be pursued or for euroskepticism, include specific reasons.
• Works Cited with at least one source that is not the textbook and not an encyclopedia (Yes Wikipedia counts as an encyclopedia. You may use it as a source but will be held accountable for any content errors.) *Pleasenote any brochure without a proper Works Cited will not be graded.

Projects can be completed with Microsoft Word however if you have access to Microsoft Publisher it may be easier. You will need to adjust margins and font sizes on the brochure- please do not use a font...
