Proposed Curriculum, Written by: The Peace Education Forum for Palestinian and Israeli Educators.
Dagan, Myriam; Al-Aarj, Shireen
This booklet is the result of more than one year of meetings from 1997 to 1998 between 16 Palestinian and Jewish Israeli educators from both formal and informal educational systems. The establishment of this forum was supported by the "People to People Program" whose main goal is to enhance dialogue and relations between Palestinians and Israelis based on equality and reciprocity. The booklet documents long discussions of difficult issues, of insights from those discussions, and of the will and commitment of all the participants to educate for peace and dialogue in both societies. The booklet includes the description of the group process, activities on four different subjects, and the impressions of some of the participants. The proposed activities in the booklet represent just the first draft. The group will continue to meet and to use the proposed activities in their schools. After getting feedback from the students about the activities, the educators will work to improve them. (BT)
