The Quiet Peacemakers. A Tribute to Teachers.
Murtagh, Teresa, Ed.; O'Sullivan, Jean, Ed.
This booklet, which is available in English, French, and Spanish, presents articles by eight individuals from around the world which demonstrate how teachers worldwide are finding ways to show children how to respect those who are different from themselves. The teachers' mission is to provide children with the means to overcome centuries-old tensions. After an introduction, the articles are as follows: "Lessons in Dialogue" (Olwin Frost, Northern Ireland); "Lessons in Love" (M. Therese Ranee, A.C., Sri Lanka); "Lessons in Citizenship" (Pascal Diard, France); "Lessons in Resistance" (Zohra T., Algeria); "Lessons in Solidarity" (Teresa Gangemi, Italy); "Lessons in Reconciliation" (Marie-Laetitia Kayirerwa, Burundi); "Lessons in Understanding" (Azijada Borovac, Bosnia and Herzegovina); and "Lessons in Responsibility" (Avi Black, United States).
