Mine-Awareness Education. A Country Review and Curriculum Guidelines for Bosnia.
Baxter, Pamela; Fisher, Jennifer; Retamal, Gonzalo
The purpose of this booklet is to provide source materials on mine awareness for teachers and practitioners who are involved with primary school children in high-risk areas and to launch a process of information and research in the field of land-mine awareness. The presented material draws heavily on the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina and is particularly oriented to being carried out in that country. The material also draws from the experience of a large number of international and non-governmental organizations working in Central America, Africa, East Asia and the Middle East. The booklet is divided into four sections: general background; land-mine awareness education programs from individual countries; a case study on curriculum guidelines for mine-awareness in Bosnia; and further suggestions for teaching mine-awareness. Sample lesson plans offer suggestions such as: role plays, inter-active games, songs and poetry, lectures, and drawings. Illustrations of typical land mines are included. Contains a 13-item annotated bibliography and a glossary of 27 acronyms. (KCM)
