An Agenda for Peace: The Role of the United Nations.
Nunez, Lucia; Foudy, Patricia; Hedlund, Kerren
Highlighting the 50th anniversary of the United Nations, this six-lesson unit of study addresses the history of the United Nations; the concepts of peace and conflict; and the topics of peacekeeping, development, relief, and the environment. One hundred handouts, suitable for transparency reproduction or classroom distribution, feature the United Nations charter and conventions; statements of past Secretary Generals and Nobel Laureates; political cartoons and newspaper clippings; and statistical charts, graphs, and maps. The lessons provide teacher preparation guidelines, recommendations for equipment and materials, suggested time needed for the lessons, and optional activities. Nine appendices conclude the unit and include text and film bibliographies, glossaries of political and environmental terms, time lines of United Nations and Nobel Peace Prize awardees, an optional lesson plan for the film, "Blue Helmets," and an introduction to cooperative learning methods.
