Peace Education and Classroom Practice

Peace Education and Classroom Practice: Introduction 

The following section looks at the subjects that are typically taught in school.  Within each subject, sample ideas and general suggestions for how to teach peace are provided.  This section is not designed to be a litany of what teachers can and can’t do.  Rather, they are designed to stimulate teachers to see the process of incorporating peace education into their classroom. 


The activities in this list are designed to combine techniques that teach peace with content that also teaches peace.  Many teachers struggle with the content aspect due to strict curriculums, either due to a lack of resources or to strong oversight from governing bodies.  In these cases we recommend that teachers refer to the Teaching and Learning Approaches section as they can still use techniques that promote peace.  Additionally, for teachers who lack access to resources, we have attempted to make this following list as resource-limited as possible so that it is accessible and useful for all who are interested.    


The Subjects

In this section, we will cover the following subject areas:

I am working on editing this section, mostly just to give it a smooth appearance (the content is great!). Anyone know how to get the pre-formatting off? I can't seem to get the preformatting turned off. Anyone know how to do this? (it's so that I can get the font the same, etc.)

Hi Stephanie,
I think the way to do it is to highlight the weirdly formatted parts and then click 'Normal' on the Format drop-down menu (to the left of the Font drop-down menu in the editing screen).

Hey Meghan - I did try that and it didn't work. My screen shook, as though it's locked or blocked or something. Well, I'll try again!
