Making a peace curriculum

Here are several resources you can use to teach peace.

Recently a homeschooling mom in one of our support groups asked about designing a peace curriculum, so I shared all of the resources that I have used or bookmarked over the years with her. It turns out that there are dozens of places online that already exist that you can use in teaching peace. Here are just a few ideas.

Peace Course is a wonderful study to do with middle schoolers, teens and adults. When you finish it, if you pass the test, you’ll even be provided with a certificate. I am currently taking the course right now and am amazed by it. I’ve hung quotes from it over my desk and listened to the mp3 of The Golden Rule in dozens of religious several times. It’s absolutely beautiful—and absolutely vital in times like these.
