A Conceptual and Practical Guide

This is the second of two Education for Peace volumes designed for secondary school students, based on the teacher-oriented Education for Peace Curriculum Manual (sold separately). Book 2 is comprised of 4 units, addressing such questions as:

• What impact does violence have on victims and aggressors?
• How can communities heal from the effects of conflict and violence?
• How can we resolve conflicts peacefully?
• What does it take to be a "leader for peace"?
• How does "leadership for peace" challenge accepted notions of power, authority and decision-making?
• What can I do to promote a culture of peace, healing and excellence in my home, school and community?

Books 1 and 2 of the Student Manual together present a total of 9 units on concepts that are integral to a comprehensive approach to creating a culture of peace, a culture of healing, and a culture of excellence in our school communities. The texts cover such concepts as the oneness of humanity, unity in diversity, the skills of peace-based conflict resolution, leadership for peace, and community-based psychosocial recovery from the destructive impacts of conflict and violence.

Each unit contains:

• Anticipation activities
• Rich conceptual discussion
• Core concept summaries
• Reflection questions for deeper understanding
• Interdisciplinary activity and project ideas
