Curriculum Materials on War, Peace, Conflict, and Change. An Annotated Bibliography with a Listing of Organizational Resources.
New York Friends Group, Inc., New York. Center for War/Peace Studies.
In February 1971, the Center for War/Peace Studies hosted a consultation of educators concerned with improving the teaching of the international dimension of education at all levels with particular emphasis on matters that affect war, peace, conflict, and change. The participants felt strongly that a survey of what actually existed in the field was necessary. The Center undertook this task. Letters were mailed to 1500 selected teachers publishers, colleges and universities, curriculum projects and voluntary organizations. Five hundred replies were received, most requesting to be kept informed of progress made in the undertaking. This annotated bibliography represents only a first step in the curriculum collection. The teaching materials are not new, but those deemed the most visible and available to teachers particularly interested in teaching about war, peace, conflict, or change. Content, objectives, strategies, method and usability at level were considerations for surveying teaching materials. Two of the thirteen projects annotated in this guide are the Amherst Project and the Harvard Social Studies Project. A list of organizations concerned with these subjects is included, as well as a list of the consultative group. (Author/OPH)
