Educating for Peace and Social Change

Posted by on September 1, 2006


This seminar, beginning Thursday evening November 2nd and ending at noon on Sunday November 5, 2006, is for those seeking inspiration, ideas and support for helping young people contribute to a more peaceful and compassionate world. It takes the recent trend toward conflict resolution programs in schools one step further, by focusing on how teachers can help their students change society.

In a supportive Quaker community, teachers of middle, junior, and senior high-school aged students will explore peacemaking through the lens of Multi-Track Diplomacy ? a holistic framework for teaching peace. Participants will have the opportunity to draw inspiration from peacemakers from a variety of ?tracks,? build a network of supportive colleagues, and begin creating their own units, lessons or courses for creating a more just and peaceful society.

Participation will count toward continuing education requirements for licensure renewal in most school systems, and seminar graduates will receive a certificate for 20 contact hours. William Penn House asks for a contribution of $50 to $250 to help cover program costs, lodging, meals, and materials.
