School-Based Peace Building in Sierra Leone

Bretherton, D., Weston, J., & Zbar, V. (2005). School-Based Peace Building in Sierra Leone. Theory Into Practice44(4), 355-362.

This article describes the Kit created for Peace Education in Sierra Leone. It is a case study of how schools and community may work together to contribute to a national peace-building effort.It gives an explanation on how the kit was created, applied and evaluated.  The sections in the article are:  Peace Building, The Sierra Leone Peace Education Kit Project, Developing the Curriculum, Working With Teachers, Evaluation, Capacity-Building Approach, Religion and Peace.  It looks like a very structured approach for Peace Education, one that I would love to implement in my school.
