Educating for Peace and Justice: A Manual for Teachers. Fifth Edition.
Gallagher, Mary Beth; And Others
Background reading resource materials and teaching units for elementary and secondary teachers interested in teaching about peace and justice are presented in this resource manual. The units are designed to help students learn that nonviolent conflict resolution is possible and that war is not inevitable; realize that sharing our resources, helping the poor, and living more sparingly and responsibly is a matter of justice and not charity; and appreciate the differences in cultures around the world. Students view films, read books and journal articles, and are involved in role playing situations, library research, brainstorming, and classroom discussions. The manual contains an introductory essay which discusses goals of educating for peace and justice. The major portion of the publication consists of resource units on major issue areas including conflict, violence, and nonviolent conflict resolution; institutional violence; peace, justice, and law; racism; poverty in the United States; global poverty and development; the military and the individual; the realities of war; the meaning of peace and justice; and mutual education and today's peacemakers. Goals and relevance, content and suggestions for class activities and projects, and bibliographies of print and nonprint resources are provided for each issue. A list of helpful organizations is provided. (Author/RM)
