The Ulster Project Curriculum Guidebook.
Carlin, Erin; Kennedy, Colleen M.
Northern Ireland has many societal needs requiring attention. The Ulster Project seeks to identify and address those needs while encouraging social progress directed toward maintaining positive social relationships among Northern Ireland's religious and cultural groups. By emphasizing counselor leadership within the framework of a critical curriculum, the Ulster Project hopes to provide Northern Ireland's youth with a sufficient social foundation to build and organize a more harmonious belief system that empowers the youth to make the move towards a lasting peace. This curriculum guidebook is intended to supplement the Ulster Project Curriculum by answering previously unanswered questions and offering additional suggestions for practice. The guidebook provides in-depth background information about the Ulster Project, its curriculum goals, its breakthrough objectives, leadership clarification, and how to understand the counselor's role as curriculum leader. It is divided into the following chapters: (1) "What Does This Look Like in Practice?"; (2) "Breakthrough Themes" (communication; leadership and risk taking; conflict deliberation; understanding social practice discourse; and interdependence and collaboration); (3) "Some Additional Things To Consider"; and (4) "A Final Thought." Each of the five themes in the guidebook has introductory activities, an activity framework, and suggestions to guide the participants' dialogue. (Contains 31 references.) (BT)
