As an educator, I believe that the highest purpose of education is to mentor students to follow a road of peace and love. Sounds fluffy? Yes, it is. But I find the alternative unbearable.
I'd like to know what resources others here use to teach peace.
I've just started Project Peace. It launches today in memory of John Lennon who was killed on Dec. 8th 1980. Teachers can make class videos to support peace. Sign a petition. I'll be adding more resources. Just download the peace pack, they are easy to make!
Here is an example. They are easy to make and download all the materials from Project Peace (mp3/song cards/ ppts ). I hope you'll join me and connect your students with the world and help continue John's message of love, friendship and peace.
I've done a good amount of research on the program Roots of Empathy. It aims to reduce bullying in schools. I've found it to be very helpful and valuable resource.
(There is also a book by the same name.)
