PEACE CAN HAPPEN, ONE STUDENT AT A TIME.

For eleven years, educator Catherine Cadden ran the bold experiment called TEMBA, a K-8 academic school based on the tenets of nonviolence and founded on the conviction that children who have the opportunity to practice peace in the classroom wouldn't just survive school - they'd thrive. Packed with real-world examples from the TEMBA classroom and the author's twenty-two years of "front-line" experience in classrooms on five continents, Peaceable Revolution Through Education offers practical everyday guidance for creating peace in today's learning environments. From tantrums to cellphones to total chaos, Cadden shows us the human beings behind the behaviors, and demonstrates what's possible when the opportunity is taken to build connection. This book dives to the root of the issues, offering insightful looks at the underlying causes of learner struggle, apathy, and rebellion, and dispelling common myths about children and the nature of learning. From a public high school in South San Francisco to a Waldorf elementary school in South Africa; from a U.N. guarded "classroom" in Kabul, Afghanistan to a Montessori kindergarden in Kansas City, Kansas, ultimately, the author's journey is a reminder that no matter where we come from and no matter where we're going, we are human beings and we love to learn.
