Discover how to harness our anger as a force for good, using songs, film, poetry and more to make the learning meaningful.
This class is taught by educator Paul Creighton who is the author of a peace education curriculum that has been employed in his native Scotland. We will be looking at the experience of peace education with children who have come from fragmented and dysfunctional backgrounds. We will explore their journey and how we can help them overcome the negative experiences which have impacted their lives so greatly. We will use songs, film, poetry, and whatever vehicle makes their learning so meaningful. We will also explore the experiences of adult offenders who have embarked on a path that sets out to redirect their offending behavior. We will discover how we can all harness our anger as a force for good. In the time available we will just dip our toes in the water; but you will be inspired to take your learning back into your own communities.
