Nurturing the Peacemakers in Our Students by Chris Weber is the only book I have seen that gives classroom teachers the key to teaching peace. Study it. Teach it. And give your students the key to a hopeful future.
- Barry Lane, Author of After THE END
This profound book . . . offers teachers a stunning reminder that the most important standard is how we treat each other within our schools, our communities, and this world.
- Jim Burke, author of The English Teacher's Companion, Second Edition
Nurturing the Peacemakers in Our Students will renew your faith in the power of stories, the power of the imagination, the power of teaching.
- Carol Jago, author of Papers, Papers, Papers
Using both historic and contemporary war images, drawing on the wisdom of both students and experienced teachers, Nurturing the Peacemakers in Our Students offers strategies for helping children speak aloud their connection to the world.
- Susan Ohanian, author of One Size Fits Few

What kind of world do you wish for your students? For all people? Nurturing the Peacemakers in Our Students offers middle and high school teachers fresh ideas to inspire and nurture the peacemakers among their students by showing them how adolescents have experienced war.

Chris Weber, as well as a wonderful cast of contributors, including Peter Elbow, Bill Bigelow, and Jim Burke, demonstrate that through reading, discussing, and writing about narratives of children who have experienced war, students make connections between what they see, hear, and read through the media about military conflicts and their horrible human consequences. This critical examination of war then inspires subsequent opportunities for students to use their literacy skills to communicate with others dedicated to ending global violence. In fact Nurturing the Peacemakers in Our Students offers lists of online organizations and projects where kids can become part of a national, international, even global community of peacemakers.

Nurturing the Peacemakers in Our Students is an extraordinarily timely book whose call for empathy, consciousness, and critical thought gives teachers the chance to make a difference in the literacy lives of their students, in the quality of their students' lives, and in the quality of the lives we all live as citizens of the world.
