Materials in this manual are designed to help educators raise the issue of nuclear war through a "day of dialog" on the subject. There are seven sections. Section 1 contains a project reationale; suggestions for implementation; methods for meeting resistance; tips for schoolwide, parent-teacher, and community discussion; uses of the media; and recommendations for follow-up activities. Section 2 outlines procedures for discussing the nuclear issue in grades K-3. Developmental issues to consider and logical discussion starting points are described and activities involving songs, books, creative writing, and art are provided. Following a discussion of developmental considerations and logical starting points, over 25 activities for grades 4-6 are outlined in section 3. Sections 4-6 treat the following project aspects for the secondary grades: where to begin, critical thinking skills, and classroom activities. Interdisciplinary in nature, activities include readings on Hiroshima, a reading on nuclear physics, a mapping exercise, a civil defense analysis, literature analyses, a debate, and community awareness projects. Section 7 contains an extensive listing of resources, including curriculum materials, audiovisual materials, and organizations.
