TMS PEACE JOURNALISM, 1 Jun 2020

For socially-conscious teachers and educators of all stripes.

TRANSCEND CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION MANUAL: #80 below

How I have organized the resources

100+ educational resources is a lot, so let me just give you a quick overview of how I’ve got all this stuff organized.

  1. Peace education theory, frameworks, and strategic planning
  • Deconstructing war and violence
  • Intercultural and interfaith
  • Anti-racism and anti-bias
  • Social justice and activism
  • Human rights and responsibilities
  • Conflict transformation and nonviolent action
  • Environment and sustainability
  • Community engagement and social action

100+ free education for peace (and justice) resources

I’ve indicated 100 resources below and numbered each. I describe it as 100+ because some include links to multiple resources. Also, note that a few organizations have extensive databases covering some relevant themes, and so a few of these databases are referenced more than once with links to different themed collections within each. All in all, it’s over 100, and the 100 I’ve chosen to include are the best of the best.

*****

Peace education theory, frameworks, and strategic planning

Documents included in this section only represent peace education or are otherwise directly associated with peace. There are many frameworks for human rights education, anti-bias education, education for sustainable development, and otherwise. These are not included. Curriculum resources for these themes are included in a later section.

*****

Comprehensive programs with peace-learning curriculum

Resources in this section are explicitly about peace or peacebuilding. Each tends to follow its own unique framework that includes a mix of themes.

*****

Curriculum and training materials by theme

Some of the links are full downloadable curriculum packages with many activities, some are single lesson plans for outstanding activities, some are classroom handouts and resources, and others link to websites that have numerous lesson-plans available for individual download. A few are reading materials that could be used to form a full curriculum, or links to websites with downloadable handouts and classroom materials.

  • Deconstructing war and violence
  • Intercultural and interfaith
  • Anti-racism and anti-bias
  • Social justice and activism
  • Human rights and responsibilities
  • Conflict transformation and nonviolent action
  • Environment and sustainability
  • Community engagement and social action

  1. The Present Education everywhere destroys those to whom it reaches, and to those to whom it is denied. Hence, Universal Peace Education, which is parent of justice and grandparent of peace, should be implemented everywhere immediately for Sustainable Peace.
