Education for Justice: A Resource Manual.
Fenton, Thomas P., Ed.
The manual provides background material and resources for use by Christian educators in developing and implementing secondary level through adult programs on justice. Social action and personal involvement are stressed throughout the five sections of the manual. Section I explains how justice and injustice are interpreted throughout the manual and analyzes the content of the remaining four sections. Section II reviews eight readings on world justice, peace, international consciousness, political action, and world affairs. Section III describes 21 learning activities which utilize games, discussion, role play, and chalkboard exercises to teach about stereotypes, social involvement, power, communications, and perceptions. Each activity specifies objectives, materials, procedures, and time required. Section IV includes model educational programs developed by religious educators which are related to the learning activities and exercises in section III. By working through the models, the reader can develop a basic understanding of educational program creation and can fill in the blank educational model form provided for his/her own use. The final section suggests books, films, simulations, and other resources for inclusion in a basic justice education resource library. A brief description and ordering information are presented for each selection. (Author/DB)
