Book Description

September 10, 2004 0325007268 978-0325007267 5 - 17 years

What could be more timely than a book that advocates we teach the skills and knowledge students need to both live peacefully in the world and promote peace through their actions? After all, children are exposed to violence dozens of times daily, whether in programming targeted to their age groups, evening news carrying the latest casualties of war and murder, or video games that trivialize cruelty.

That's why Riane Eisler and Ron Miller have joined with thirteen other proponents for peace education, including famed children's troubadour Raffi, to present a crucial collection of essays that will help you create instructional practices and lessons that model the tools students need to turn aside culturally conditioned predilections toward domination and violence and, instead, embrace ideals that enable them to transform their relationships through a belief in compassion, caring, respect, and diversity. This vitally important book includes not only a strong rationale for why teaching for peace is utterly necessary, but also specific chapters dealing with issues that teachers encounter every day, including:

  • using peaceful instead of violent language
  • emphasizing social justice
  • developing students' vision of peace through their own sense of integrity.
Grounded in today's cultural realities, Educating for a Culture of Peace asks you to think globally, act locally, and fine-tune your practice by instilling every lesson you teach with the basic humane values that lead to greater interpersonal and intercultural understanding. Read Educating for a Culture of Peace and make a concrete contribution to a better world, one peaceful classroom at a time.
