Whither Social Studies? In Pockets of Peace at School
Carter, Candice C.
Journal of Peace Education, v1 n1 p77-87 Mar 2004
Although it is marginalized by less instructional time and emphasis, teachers can find spaces for social studies with a peace emphasis across the curriculum, school day and campus. Developing students' capabilities for peace through broad-based social education includes behavioral, cognitive, spiritual and attitudinal components. Social education for peace occurs through a vision of a peaceful context, a commitment to consistently work towards accomplishing it and use of peace skills. Suggestions for integrating peace-oriented social studies across the curriculum and school activities for children are provided here. (Contains 1 figure.)
