Let's Talk about Peace, Let's Talk about Nuclear War. A Peace Curriculum by Teaching in a Nuclear Age.
Lemoine, Julie; Farkas, Randi
These learning activities will help children in grades 1-8 learn about issues concerning nuclear war and disarmament and help them develop their own framework for decision making in the nuclear age. The introduction discusses curriculum objectives and the procedures for implementing the curriculum. A sample letter to parents and instruments for surveying students' and teachers' thoughts concerning nuclear issues are included. Seven units of study comprise the major portion of the guide. Unit I helps students express their thoughts and feelings concerning nuclear war. The second unit is designed to help children understand how individuals create and see enemies. The third unit helps children deal with feelings of anger, frustration, and fear. Unit IV points out the differences between a reality focused on solving conflict through violence and one made up of negotiating and nonviolent resistance. Unit V contains facts concerning nuclear war. The sixth unit gives examples of how different species live together harmoniously. The concluding chapter presents accounts of what people are doing to prevent nuclear war. A five-page bibliography of resource materials for parents, teachers, and students is provided. (RM)
