One World, One Earth: Educating Children for Social Responsibility.
Hammond, Merryl; Collins, Rob
This book is designed to help teachers, environmental educators, and parents teach children and adolescents about social responsibility. It focuses on helping children talk about and understand peace as well as issues related to the environment, human rights, development, the international community, and social justice. It seeks to promote cooperation, solidarity, and security by combating ideas that promote war, violence, nuclear weapons, child abuse, sexism, racism, and environmental destruction. Included in five chapters is a selection of: (1) learning activities and discussion starters; (2) detailed lesson plans; (3) tips for using visual materials; (4) songs; (5) simulation games; and (6) suggestions for working in different settings. Five appendixes provide an annotated list of books and educational materials, lists of relevant organizations, songs, ideas for experimenting with poetry writing, and simulation games. (MDM)
