Peaceful Pedagogy

McLeod , J. and Reynolds, R. (2010). Peaceful Pedagogy. Terrigal: David Barlow Publishing.

Peaceful-Pedagogy-coverPeaceful Pedagogy sets out a way for every classroom and every school to become a peace-building place. It presents a pedagogical model for learning about, through and for human rights so that children can know, experience and enact human rights and responsibilities to create the conditions conducive to peace, whether at an interpersonal, intergroup, national or international level (UNICEF Peace Education 2009).

It supports teachers in planning a values-based human rights curriculum for the essential learnings in literacy and numeracy, and important life skills such as critical thinking, decision-making, communication, negotiation, conflict resolution, coping, and self-management (UNICEF Peace Education 2009) and demonstrates through case studies how children learn to enact ‘peace’ locally, bringing about constructive change, through issues that are both local and global.
