The "Didactic Locus" of Peace Education: Extra-Curricular, Mono-Curricular, Cross-Curricular, or Trans-Curricular Approaches. Didakometry. No. 74.
Bjerstedt, Ake
This document discusses various models of peace education. Peace education can be handled in a number of different ways in relation to the traditional "Didactic space" of schools, for example: (1) peace education can be made into a special subject, a mono-curricular approach; (2) peace related issues can be handled by means of special efforts outside of the normal system of classes, an extra-curricular or special event approach; (3) peace education can be seen as a common assignment for several or all school subjects, a cross-curricular approach; or (4) peace education may be viewed as aiming at education for peace values and nonviolent interaction with others, whereby the question of school subject attachment moves into the background, a trans- curricular approach. Interview illustrations on the possible contributions of different school subjects are presented. The document is divided into two parts. The first part is an introductory discussion on the place of peace education in the didactic space of schools. The second part contains excerpts from interviews with 50 experts from different nations. Contains 14 references. (Author/DK)
