Fujita, H., & Ito, T. (Nov 1992). Peace Education in Japanese Universities. Peace Education Miniprints No. 36., 20p. This paper contends that peace education is necessary for all university students in Japan for several reasons: students are going to take leading roles in society; the world is changing rapidly; and university teachers have a social responsibility not to repeat the faults of Japanese teachers in World War II. Japanese peace education has been provided by many elementary and high school teachers since World War II. Peace education in universities expanded rapidly through the impact of the Special Session of Disarmament of the United Nations in 1978. The paper is based on three national surveys of peace education in Japanese universities. These surveys showed that multidisciplinary lectures were provided in many universities, that the contents were expanded to include structural violence, and that teachers used diverse teaching methods.

Francis, G. (2000). Preventing Deadly Conflict: Toward a World without War., "With contributions from Yukie Toyama and Paula Wichienkuer." Developed in cooperation with the Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict. Funding provided by the Center for African Studies and the Center for East Asian Studies at Stanford University. For the complete report, see SO 032 300. Page Length: 106. Although some people believed that the end of the Cold War would herald a new age of peace, the 1990s have seen more than five million people die in over 35 deadly conflicts. New technologies have made warfare ever more deadly. There is, however, a breadth of options available to prevent or control deadly conflict in the world. This curriculum module aims to introduce high school students to the tools that have been used successfully to prevent violence, and to demonstrate why it is urgent that the United States act to prevent conflict beyond its borders. Through group work and simulations, students can gain experience in analyzing deadly conflicts and prescribing strategies for preventing them. The module begins with an introduction and rationale, an overview, goals, materials and equipment needed, grade levels and subjects, social science standards, time and suggested sequence of activities, and small group roles. The three supporting lessons are: (1) "What Is 'Deadly Conflict?'" (contains 2 transparencies, 2 teacher information cards, and 6 handouts); (2) "Analyzing Conflict" (contains 2 transparencies, a teacher information card, and 11 handouts); and (3) "How Might Recent Conflicts Have Been Prevented?" (contains a teacher information card and 11 handouts). Appendixes contain an extensive glossary and a list of general references, as well as references for each lesson. (BT) ED447050
Fitzell, S. G. (1997). Free the Children Conflict Education for Strong and Peaceful Minds. Conflict Resolution Skills for Pre-K through Grade 12., 208p. Noting that teaching conflict education is not something that can be done in a set of isolated lessons in a curriculum program, this book discusses a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate approach to conflict education. The book is organized into two parts. The first part explains the basic underlying philosophy proposed in the book, and the second part discusses conflict education for specific age groups. Part One, "Conflict Education: The Process," contains one chapter: "The Five Essential Components of a Conflict Education Program." These components are modeling, relationships, conditioning, empowerment, and skills. Part Two, "Conflict Education for Different Ages," contains six chapters. Each chapter in this section discusses cognitive and moral development and offers practical approaches and techniques for dealing with conflict. In addition to these topics, each chapter addresses age-specific concerns. Chapter 2, "The Preschool/Kindergarten Child," discusses the influence of television violence. Chapter 3, "The Lower Elementary School Child," discusses the second-grader's concept of peace and the resistant child. Chapter 4, "The Upper Elementary School Child," provides a teacher's reflections on conflict education and personal growth and discusses peer relationships. Cha pter 5, "The Junior High Adolescent," discusses cliques and adolescent girls. Chapter 6, "The High School Adolescent," explores verbal bullying, relationship violence, and the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC). The book's appendices are: (1) "Developmental Stages and Stages of Moral Development and Their Impact on the Curriculum"; (2) "Corporal PunishmentFacts and Alternatives"; (3) "TV Violence"; and (4) "Bullying." The book concludes with an annotated bibliography that contains 43 references, a bibliography organized by subject that contains 58 references, and a listing of additional resources that includes children's books on peace, feelings, and relationship; products; organizations with peaceful goals; and Web sites.

Fitch, T., & Marshall, J. L. (1999). The Teaching Students To Be Peacemakers Program: Program Overview and Review of the Literature. This paper provides a program overview and review of the literature on the Teaching Students to be Peacemakers Program (TSPP), which offers peer mediation and conflict resolution to students of all ages. The program features seven steps: creating a cooperative environment; teaching students the nature of conflict; teaching all students the problem solving negotiation procedure; teaching all students to mediate conflict; implementing the TSPP; refining and upgrading resolution skills; and repeating the steps yearly through grade 12. A key barrier to the program's success can be teacher commitment to the TSPP. This can be addressed by displaying administrative support, providing education on the benefits of the program, and having frequent contact with designated trainers. Peer mediation programs can be a significant part of a school's safety plan. Multiple studies have shown that involved students retain the mediation skills, teachers spend less time dealing with student conflict, and administrators can almost eliminate time spent on conflict resolution. While many programs train a few select students to serve as mediators, the TSPP trains all students to be mediators. (Contains 12 references.) (SM) ED436517
Firer, R. (Summer 1998). Curriculum Inquiry, 28(2), 195-208(114). Human rights education, as reflected in the presentation of "the others" and relations with them in forty-four history textbooks, twenty-three civics texts, and five "peace education" manuals, published in Israel from the 1950s on, are analyzed and evaluated. Attitudes toward Gentiles, Arabs, Oriental Israelis, and newcomers have improved immensely during the past half century, but nevertheless the "hidden" textbooks portray the cultural loftiness and prejudice of Israelis who are still a nation of people trapped by their own siege mentality.

Includes excerpts from interviews and discussions with a grade 2 child, her mother, and her teacher concerning their experiences with "Peacemakers" approach. Notes that the "Peacemakers" approach offers expectation of change and a sense of possibility for practitioners. (LBT) EJ595667
Fidzduff, M., & Gormley, C. (September 2000). Northern Ireland: Changing perceptions of the 'other'. Development, 43(3), 62-65(64). Mari Fitzduff and Cathy Gormley argue that there are three stages in changing perceptions of the 'other'. First, the recognition that these perceptions of the 'other' actually exist. Second, the realization that the perceptions of the other are in fact perpetuated by the alienation and ghettoization of the various sides. Third, by endeavouring to deal with this sense of ghettoization by bringing the communities together through various processes to dispel the myths. They show that since 1969 in Northern Ireland the society at large, with the help of government funded ventures, has managed to successfully work through these stages with considerable effect on the development of an agreed political solution.

Grossi, V. (2000). Peace Education: An Historical Overview (1843-1939). Peace Education Miniprints No. 101., Revised version of a paper presented at the World Conference on Higher Education (Paris, France, October 1998). Page Length: 26. Peace education has come a long way, but its history is not very well known. This text gives an historical overview, focusing on European developments from 1843-1939. Cites the London Peace Conference of 1843 and the Universal Peace Conferences as examples of bridging the principles of peace and the classroom. Glimpses are given of a number of important peace educators and activists. Early educational and psychological research is illustrated with Jean Piaget's work. The text asks these questions of the future: "How can the culture of peace become a world culture?"; "How will the educational system face up to the challenges of an ever-changing multicultural society?"; and "Is it possible to create a world citizen?"

Goehner, T. B. P. L. (1999). Woodrow Wilson: Prophet of Peace. Teaching with Historic Places. This lesson describes President Woodrow Wilson's struggle with and his ultimate failure at achieving lasting world peace through the League of Nations. The lesson focuses on November 23, 1923, the eve of the fifth anniversary of the Armistice that concluded World War I, when a frail and ill Wilson was ready to deliver a commemorative address by radio from the library of his brick home on S Street in Washington, DC. The lesson could be used in teaching units on foreign policy, peace education, presidential history, or the history of World War I. The lesson objectives are to: articulate the ideals of world peace and world order that Wilson espoused; describe the conflict between Wilson's ideals and the Senate's policy of isolationism; and explain why the ideals of a visionary like Wilson are significant in forming the policies of the government. The lesson is divided into the following teaching activities sections: Setting the Stage: Historical Context; Locating the Site: Maps (Washington, DC, 1914; Presidential Tour, 1919); Determining the Facts: Readings (Wilson's Passion for the League of Nations; The Collision of Ideals and Policy; Wilson's Final Campaign); Visual Evidence: Images (Origin of the League of Nations; The Covenant; The Wilson House; Wilson's Library and Drawing Room; "Three Little Elephants"); Putting It All Together: Activities (Public Speaking; Current Events and Wilson's Peace; Partisan Political Cartoons); and Supplementary Resources.

Giere, U. (1997). Adult Learning in a World at Risk: Emerging Policies and Strategies. Expectations and Prospects for the 21st Century As Voiced by Respondents to a 1996 UNESCO Questionnaire in Preparation for the Fifth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA V). CONFINTEA Background Document., 38p. Emerging adult education policies and strategies were studied through a survey of United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) member states, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and social partners. Questionnaires were returned by 93 countries and 12 NGOs. The study focused on the following: social change and its impact on adult education since 1985; adult education around the world; trends in adult learning around the world; formal and nonformal adult basic education; adult literacy; adult learning and the technological revolution; vocational training for adults; education toward a culture of peace; education for a democratic, civil society; education and the all-round development of all individuals; formulation of a broader vision of adult learning; integration of adult learning into the lifelong learning system; the changing role of the state, universities, and NGOs; the strengthening of cooperative structures; new ways of financing adult education; and UNESCO's role in the future of adult learning. Despite differences in individual respondents' opinions regarding how adult education goals should be prioritized and reached, there was general consensus that adult learning must be integrated into the lifelong learning system and no longer viewed only as a second chance for disadvantaged individuals, a means of reaching the unreached, or tool to provide skills to the unskilled.

Discusses resources of hope in educating for the 21st century, arguing the importance of active listening to children's voices and resistance to fatalistic fallacies regarding negative trends. The discussion examines principles from critical futurism and contemporary movements of educational innovation (including peace, multicultural, nonsexist, and environmental education) and discusses how schools are sites of possibility for encouraging alternatives to violence.

Hutchinson, F. (1996). Building Alternatives to Violence. Are There Needs and Opportunities for Teachers and Teacher Educators To Be Practical Futurists? Peace Education Miniprints No. 85., 20p. This paper argues the importance of not only understanding how "cultural editing" may limit our images and those of our children for creating non-violent futures, but also of the need for quality responses by teachers and teacher educators to such editing. Cultural editing is a term futurists use to describe processes both within formal and non-formal education that are likely to restrict imagination about social alternatives, including alternatives to violence, and to hamper action competence or skills in non-violent democratic participation. Drawing upon new research in schools, a strong case is presented for an explicit futures dimension in the school curriculum and for a re-conceptualization of "literacy" to include more optimal forms such as skills of social imagination and action competence in the non-violent resolution of conflict. A number of working principles are advanced relating to active listening to young people's voices on the future, applied foresight, and empowerment. (Contains 29 references.) (EH) ED416130

Hunt, G. (January 97). Moral Crisis, Professionals and Ethical Education. Nursing Ethics, 4(1), 29-38(10). Western civilization has probably reached an impasse, expressed as a crisis on all fronts: economic, technological, environmental and political. This is experienced on the cultural level as a moral crisis or an ethical deficit. Somehow, the means we have always assumed as being adequate to the task of achieving human welfare, health and peace, are failing us. Have we lost sight of the primacy of human ends? Governments still push for economic growth and technological advances, but many are now asking: economic growth for what, technology for what? Health care and nursing are caught up in the same inversion of human priorities. Professionals, such as nurses and midwives, need to take on social responsibilities and a collective civic voice, and play their part in a moral regeneration of society. This involves carrying civic rights and duties into the workplace.
Hudson, D. L. (1991). Develop and Implement a Peace Education Curriculum for Elementary School Students through a Planned Program of Instruction., 271pp. Ed.D. Practicum, Nova University. This practicum was designed to provide K-6 grade children with peace making tools. The curriculum was piloted in a public school for one year. The goal was to teach children how to make peace with themselves and with others. The writer used a combination of strategies in the curriculum to meet the needs of the children; provided self-esteem lessons; utilized conflict resolution techniques, including a new approach to group consultation; utilized parent participation/moral education lessons designed to involve the family; and emphasized social skill training. The results of the practicum were encouraging. Analysis of the data revealed that the children showed significant gains in the areas of social skills, self-esteem, and conflict resolution skills. Teachers indicated that most of the children did learn how to make peace with themselves and with others. (Author) ED347112

Paper presented at the Special issue: "Safe Schools Through a Comprehensive, Effective, and Positive Strategy: An International Perspective," edited by Miguel A. Gutierrez and Carlos H. Lepiz. The need for solutions to youth violence has engendered inappropriate uses of conflict-resolution and peer-mediation programs. A research review indicates that reducing aggression and violence requires schoolwide change in conflict attitudes and behavior and concurrent, intensive programs targeting specific problems of particularly aggressive children.

Peace Education in the Early Childhood/Elementary Education Classroom: Setting the Agenda for a Humane World., Paper presented at the Annual Conference of the National Council for the Social Studies (Anaheim, CA, November 21, 1998). Peace Education is now considered by many as a viable curriculum that could be integrated into many school programs. This paper identifies and clarifies the role that peace education can play in the creation of a humane, nonviolent learning environment; highlights recent research on brain-based learning that holds significance for the inclusion of peace education in the curriculum, especially with integration of the arts and humanities; and demonstrates and invites participation in workshop activities that enhance the quest for a peaceful school and classroom. The paper maintains that peace education can enfold integrated, brain-based, multisensory learning, and a problem-solving approach. Integration of the arts and humanities in peace education can be a form of art therapy for children living in violent communities. The paper further maintains that peace education ensures enhanced citizenship skills for a new century. Appended to the paper are lists of: resources for brain-based learning; books and curriculum guides for peace education/conflict resolution/violence prevention/human rights/global education; and online resources.

Peace Education and Conflict Resolution through the Expressive Arts in Early Childhood Education and Teacher Education., Paper presented at the Annual conference of the Eastern Educational Research Association (Hilton Head, SC, February 26, 1999). Several modes of expressive arts may be especially appropriate for peace education and conflict resolution instruction in early childhood and teacher education classrooms. This paper explores the integration of the concepts and processes of peace education and conflict resolution through an examination of current research and professional development publications, as well as observations made in selected U.S. early education and teacher education classrooms. The paper focuses on the role of the dramatic and language arts in fostering peace education and conflict resolution. With regard to early education, the paper is informed by several sources, including literature on brain-based learning and multiple intelligences. Also discussed is the effective use of reflective listening, reading and storytelling, journal writing, creative drama, dramatic play, and problem-solving techniques. The report concludes that peace education strategies developed through appropriate dramatic and puppet play and other language and communication experiences can counteract the violent images depicted in the media and many children's toys. Language and literacy experiences can foster peace education and conflict resolution and play an important role in early childhood teacher education. (Contains 54 references.) (KB) ED433105
Hinitz, B. (Apr 1994). Peace Education for Children: Research on Resources., 24pp. Paper presented at the Annual American Educational Research Association (New Orleans, LA, April 4-8, 1994). Peace education is and will continue to be a goal of early childhood educators around the world. A variety of definitions of peace and peace education can be found in the literature. A plethora of resources has become available during the past decade for those wishing to teach peace in educational settings for young children. The literature is replete with statements and examples regarding the necessity of peace education for the child's optimal social-emotional development. However, the literature dealing with peace education for infants and toddlers is severely limited. Three recent articles provide concrete examples of appropriate peace education practices for infants and toddlers. The classroom setting for 3- to 6-year-olds should offer space, materials, and opportunities for harmonious and interactive play. Planned program or curriculum activities can also enhance the peaceful classroom. Children's literature can be a powerful vehicle for strengthening communication skills and teaching peaceful conflict resolution. Therefore, books used with children should be screened and evaluated beforehand to determine the values they convey about peace and conflict. Some books can provide information that children can use to solve their own problems of dealing with anger. Writing books can also be a wonderful experience for primary level children. Some items in the peace literature are more appropriate for primary level and older children; many of the concepts in these books are at an adult level, and must be adapted to the children's cognitive and affective developmental levels. Others books are designed specifically for adults. For example, Maria Montessori's work, "Peace and Education," puts forth many concepts that still hold true today, including the observation that, to set about a sane, spiritual rebuilding of the human race, we must go back to the child. (A 150-item bibliography lists adult and children's resources on peace education.) (AS) ED375973

Cyberspace: A New Frontier for Peace Education., 25pp. Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Chicago, IL, March 24-28, 1997). This paper explores four dimensions of telecommunications as resources for peace education: (1) advocacy for special issues or concerns as a social action component; (2) enhancement for teaching peace education and conflict resolution; (3) links in cyberspace as an added dimension for partnerships and collaborative projects; and (4) expansion of expertise through technology and collegial contacts in other global centers. Evidence collected from several disciplines in a global search for projects, processes, and products could offer a blueprint for action for those in peace education. Survey results are shared on the attitudes of 50 peace educators throughout the world on the potential of telecommunications. (EH) ED420606

The Challenge of Peace Education: Do Our Efforts Make a Difference?, 32pp. Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (72nd, Chicago, IL, April 3-7, 1991). The findings of a study that examined the impact of peace studies courses at the college and university level upon students is reported. The study involved 260 undergraduate students at 3 midwestern universities. At the beginning of each course, students filled out a questionnaire; at the end of the course, students were given identical questionnaires to see how their attitudes, beliefs, and levels of activity had changed during the semester. One year later students were mailed a third identical questionnaire to see what further changes had taken place. A control group also was used so that a comparison of responses between the groups would indicate whether or not the change could be attributed to the influence of a peace studies course. Analyses of the results of the study do not support a major hypothesis of the study, that students taking a peace studies course would have significant changes in attitude in a more peaceful direction than students in a control groups. However, the study does show that as a result of taking a peace studies course, one in five students do something to promote peace. (DB) ED339669

Harris, I. M. (2001). Challenges for Peace Educators at the Beginning of the Twenty-First Century., Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Seattle, WA, April 10-14, 2001). Page Length: 24. This paper provides a description of the history and advancements made in peace education during the past century. By the end of the 20th century, 200 colleges in the United States had peace studies programs and approximately 1 in 10 of the public schools had conflict resolution programs. The paper focuses on four challenges faced by peace educators today, including: (1) how to replace a military culture with a nonviolent culture; (2) how to convince policymakers and educators to put resources into supporting peace education; (3) how to produce research that demonstrates the value of teaching young people how to behave peacefully; and (4) how to develop peace building strategies in schools. At the beginning of the 21st century, peace education is being used to challenge stereotypes where there is a long history of humiliation, victimization, and ethnic, racial, and religious hatred. Peace educators concerned with violent behavior of youth use violence prevention strategies to help students learn how to avoid weapons, bullying, crime, and drugs. Peace educators need to help convince legislators, school boards, administrators, and general citizens to put resources into peace-building approaches to violence prevention.

Harris, I. M., Glowinski, J., & Perleberg, N. (1998). Factors That Promote Implementation of Peace Education Training. Peace Education Miniprints No. 94. This study surveyed 31 professional educators who have taken a peace education course to see what factors influence their use of skills and knowledge acquired in this class. The main hypothesis of this study is that theoretical knowledge is not enough to motivate teachers to become peace educators. Respondents indicated that knowledge of subject matter was important but not as important as feelings of urgency about violence. Religious faith, past peace education success, and school climate helped peace education efforts. Responses to a questionnaire used in this study indicate the wide variety of approaches to peace education: (1) 58% were dealing with diversity; (2) 54% were teaching about peace; (3) 50% were helping their students cope with violence; (4) 35% were advocating violence prevention; and (5) 23% were working with a peer mediation program.

Peace studies explores organized non-violence and violence; their relationships to society, behavior, and consciousness; and ways of working toward a just and harmonious world community. Noting a fairly rapid growth in peace studies courses on college and university campuses during the last half of the 20th century, this report provides a description of the form, special structures, and programs of peace studies in colleges and universities in Western Europe and North America. The document describes a rich array of peace studies programs and course offerings, especially those that focus on conflict resolution. These programs rely heavily on voluntary efforts by dedicated individuals and have had too little, long term, institutional funding. A 48-item reference list concludes the report.

Peace education as an educational reform originally responded to international threats of violence and wars. Since the end of the Cold War, peace education has directed its efforts to many different aspects of violence that plague both teachers and students. This paper reports on the efforts of one school district in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to respond to escalating violence in students' lives by teaching peace education. Peer mediation, courses on nonviolence, environmental awareness, curricula based on teaching respect, anger management, and violence prevention have been initiated to help students deal with the problems of violence in their lives. Two endnotes are included and 39 references are attached. (Author) ED362458
Harris, I. M. (1990). Peace Studies in the United States at the University and College Level., 28p. The number of peace studies programs on campuses in the United States has grown dramatically since the first such program was begun in 1948. At the beginning of the 1990s, the world is experiencing a renaissance in peace related activities that include tearing down the Iron Curtain, nonviolent revolutions in Europe's East Bloc and the Philippines, citizen diplomacy, arms reduction, and peer mediation in the schools. Peace studies attempt to analyze these developments, providing a historical foundation and a theoretical understanding of how these efforts contribute to the cessation of violence. This paper describes 13 peace and conflict resolution programs in the United States at the beginning of the 1990s. A table that indicates the most frequently chosen books by peace educators is included. (DB) ED322046
Harik, R. M. (1993). Thinking about Our Future: War, Society, and the Environment. A Series of Lesson Plans., 130p. This packet of 11 lesson plans is designed to help high school social studies classes examine socio-political issues facing the post-Cold War world. Though its multi-disciplinary approach touches upon a number of current topics, the packet's particular focus is on the wide-ranging impact of war and militarism on the planet's growing ecological crises. The lessons have been designed to introduce students to the background information they need to intelligenly analyze today's international news, as well as to encourage students to ask critical, normative questions such as "what is the meaning of 'security' in today's world?" and "what is the role of the citizen in fostering environmental consciousness?" A basic premise running throughout the lessons is that new, globally-oriented thinking must take the place of the old, narrowly defined nation-state system if humanity is going to overcome the environmental crisis facing it. Thus, in addition to lessons such as "Re-thinking 'Security' in the "'New World Order'" and "Weapons Conflict Resolution at the Personal, Social, and International Level," there is also a strong focus on nuclear proliferation as a paradigm of the special dangers of violent confrontation in the modern age. The lessons offer a variety of activities and strategies to encourage an active and constructive engagement with these issues, in particular role-playing, cooperative learning formats, and journaling. A resource list at the end of the packet describes currently available fiction, non-fiction, videos, journals, and organizations relevant to the issues at hand. (RMH) ED360252

Evaluation of a Peace Education Program: Results, Problems, and Needs., 7pp. Paper presented at the Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association (98th, Boston, MA, August 11, 1990). One approach of the peace movement has been the development of peace education course in schools and universities. This paper is an evaluation of the effects of one such course on the beliefs and attitudes of students. Two evaluations were done, one in the spring of 1988 and one in the winter of 1990. University students enrolled in a course titled, "National Security: Its Science and Technology," were assessed before and after the term and compared to a control group of students. Differences were found between the 1988 and 1990 groups of students, possibly due to the shift in world power positions. The primary effect of the course was to increase students' cognitive differentiation among related issues such as nuclear weapons, nuclear power, war, and SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative). Significant patterns of differences also were found between male and female students. A 7-item list of references is included. (Author/DB) ED339665
