Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This collection of essays looks at how a curriculum of peace can be incorporated into traditional English classes for grades seven through twelve. Dealing with issues of war, both historical and present, acts of terrorism such as September 11, and school violence like the Columbine incident, these essays attempt to give teachers a way to let students have a voice and express their opinions in a peaceful fashion. Section 1, Peace and War, looks at lessons that can be used to teach about the Vietnam War, the Civil War, World War II, and the Middle East. It discusses the use of primary sources and has some useful ideas for interdisciplinary class work. The next section, Peace and the Arts, explores the use of poetry, performance, and personal story. The final section, Peace and Our Schools, conveys the idea that students must build a sense of belonging to avert potential violence. It includes ideas on using hip-hop poetry, examining pop culture for examples of violence, learning assertive communication skills and anti-violence strategies, and using writing to give students a voice. Teachers of English, social studies, or history will find many articles in this book inspiring. The many excellent ideas are backed by sound research. Although it is not a book to read from cover to cover, it is one that can be referred to many times and would be excellent to read and discuss with other teachers. This collection of essays encourages educators to think about the messages in their classrooms and how a curriculum of peace could be included. 2004, NCTE, 224p.; Biblio., pb. Ages adult professional.
