Learning Peace: A Resource Unit.
Abrams, Grace Contrino; Schmidt, Fran Contrino
The resource unit prepares seventh through twelfth grade students for peace, helping them to develop an interest in peace, to realize that it is possible, and to recognize their future role in peacekeeping. Activities are included which help the student understand and assess his own and others' attitudes and beliefs toward peace; examine the social, economic, and political reasons for war; analyze human and environmental problems resulting from war; investigate the aims of the national and international organizations for peace; identify world problems; evaluate the communications media's role in peace; examine alternative ways of conflict resolution; and enumerate ways to participate in the quest for peace. The teacher may use the total guide or select certain activities. A framework for each of nine major sections consists of the major objectives, main concept, notes to the teacher which include resources, and activities for the students. A bibliography is given along with an appendix listing organizations working for peace. (SJM)
