It is finally here.  You have asked for the opportunity to earn graduate credit and now we have the chance to come together and join your fellow elementary educators in exploring how to integrate Peace Education into your classroom!  This opportunity will be available to all in the Summer of 2010! 


Course Description:  Integrating Peace Education into the Elementary Classroom

This course will focus on the principles, frameworks and practices of Peace Education including conflict resolution, human rights, service learning, cultural understanding and the intentional structures to create peaceful classrooms.  The main focus is on the practical application and integration of these ideas into elementary classrooms as well as school-wide settings.  This is an engaging, participatory and experiential class that builds a supportive adult community of peace educators. Participants will share practical experiences and learn from each other.  This unique course is designed to continue the learning and accountability to each other into the fall of the school year through conference calls and one final evening class.


Class Dates and Times:

Summer 2010 (additional details will be announced in the Spring 2010)



Hamline University
Saint Paul, MN



The course will cost $460.00 for two semester credits from Hamline University.


Instructors:  Lisa Boland Blake, M.Ed and Martha Roberts, M.A.
