Develop and Implement a Peace Education Curriculum for Elementary School Students through a Planned Program of Instruction.
Hudson, Dale L.
This practicum was designed to provide K-6 grade children with peace making tools. The curriculum was piloted in a public school for one year. The goal was to teach children how to make peace with themselves and with others. The writer used a combination of strategies in the curriculum to meet the needs of the children; provided self-esteem lessons; utilized conflict resolution techniques, including a new approach to group consultation; utilized parent participation/moral education lessons designed to involve the family; and emphasized social skill training. The results of the practicum were encouraging. Analysis of the data revealed that the children showed significant gains in the areas of social skills, self-esteem, and conflict resolution skills. Teachers indicated that most of the children did learn how to make peace with themselves and with others. (Author)
