Training for Nonviolent Action for High School Students: A Handbook.
The handbook for secondary students advocates nonviolent action, not passivity nor retaliation toward injustices. Emphasis is upon helping students to understand nonviolent action; to be familiar with training information on courses, time requirements, problems, costs, and procedures; and to deal with direct objectives toward peaceful social action. To stimulate thinking, the major portion of the handbook is in the form of questions of interest to students and teachers, and responses which were written by people previously involved in direct non-violent action. Resources and a bibliography for those interested in training for non-violent action are included. An appendix contains a model for fifteen hour weekend course, a list to check before acting, ideas for integrating social change into the curriculum, a copy of an official Selective Service memorandum, a bibliography of films, and ideas on street theater.
