Peace & Justice Education

From Joni Wilson, Temple School Curriculum coordinator

Peace-related Curriculum

A comprehensive approach to positive peacemaking skills and the peace process include aspects of personal peace, human relationships, global community, and environmental relationships. Without attention to each of these, the process is incomplete.

The following are courses, currently available in the Temple School curriculum, that include aspects of the peace process.  There is no predefined "order" about which course to take.  That decision is open to each individual's needs.
