New York Friends Group, Inc., New York. Center for War/Peace Studies.; Diablo Valley Education Project, Orinda, CA.
This document reports on second year meetings of a curriculum development project in the war/peace field; SO 001 259 is the first year's report. Twenty-two teachers of English, science, and social studies participated for an introduction to the Project and its goals, and for experience in a conflict simulation game. Other purposes were to: 1) test the application of a new set of criteria for evaluating the value and political assumptions of resource materials and to demonstrate the necessity for such criteria; 2) outline the resources available; 3) present an introductory outline of the technical aspects of curriculum development. The simulation game is described in detail and summary of the discussion on social crisis in the United States is included. Appendices present sample questions from the resource evaluation, and guidelines for preparing a teaching-learning unit. The second workshop was devoted to developing objectives, techniques, and content of interdisciplinary units on Conflict and Conflict Resolution. Included in the appendices are: 1) diagram of Project 1971; 2) definition of the knowledge, affective, and skills objectives to be developed; 3) an outline of developmental ideas on conflict; and, 4) a model unit outline on Methods of Conflict Resolution. Discussion notes give ideas for relating science education to education about war, peace, conflict, and change. Each workshop report lists participants, consultants, and activities. Related documents are SO 001 259 through SO 001 266. (Author/JSB)
