Learning the way of peace: a teachers' guide to peace education
Part one [Chapters 1 and 2] of the guide discusses the nature of peace education and the concept of peace. Part two [Chapters 3 to 5] explores ways of integrating peace values into the school curriculum and various practices that make school a place of peace. It also introduces a large number of teaching and learning methods of peace education. Thirdly, Chapter 6 considers ways of developing staff in peace education. Chapter 7 suggests ways of reducing violence in school. Part four [Chapters 8 to 18] introduces a thematic model for peace education with 10 themes based on core peace values most relevant to education in our present global context. Each theme presents a conceptual analysis, intended outcome, classroom practices, hints for peace culture building and model learning activities. The last two chapters are on designing school programmes and evaluating peace learning.
