A Strategy Guide for Schools and School Systems in Education for Peace and Justice.
McGinnis, James B.
This is a revision and update of an earlier curriculum guide designed to meet the needs of educators in implementing education for peace and justice (EPJ) in both public and religious school systems. The guide is divided into four parts, with an introductory essay presenting the goals for an EPJ program. Goals of the program include: developing skills for nonviolent conflict resolution; searching for causes of and alternatives to war; recognizing institutional violence (racism, sexism, imperialism, etc.); developing global awareness of the interdependence of nations; generating alternatives for future societies and institutions; building cooperative structures in the classroom and school; promoting the values of peace and justice; patriotism; integrating the values of peace with the making and living of peace; and understanding and living Christian hope. Part 1 outlines a step by step process for looking at, deciding, planning, and implementing EPJ programs. Using the collective experiences of peace educators from all over the country, part 2 provides case studies of some successful programs implemented in both public and parochial schools. Part 3 includes five sets of guidelines for curriculum evaluation, and part 4 contains four essays discussing recommended starting points. An appendix, which lists other resources, materials, consultants, and organizations, is included in packet form in hardcopy from the institute. It is not included in the microfilm. (Author/JK)
