Fear of a Bully Free Nation

Posted on March 23, 2014 at 8:21pm 3 Comments

Do we live in fear of a bully free nation?

I know this may sound odd.  Surely we want fewer bullies?  Surely we all, as parents, educators, counselors, ministers and so on, have been working on this for a long time?  It goes without saying (doesn’t it?) that fewer bullies is a good thing.

Yet when we think about the reality of backlash against peace education (called by some teaching tolerance or multicultural education), I have to ask:  do we actually fear a…


Does it need to change their life? Towards a better understanding of “transformative” learning in field based courses

Posted on February 25, 2014 at 8:42pm 4 Comments

I recently had the pleasure of being at a workshop at my alma mater, George Mason. The organizers brought together a group of us focused on field-based experiential courses. I was asked to share about my own leadership of my program’s field based peace building course to Morocco. My colleagues there significantly improved my thinking especially as regards to the idea of “being transformed” by these courses, something we as faculty and students involved in field-based courses often talk…


How Teachers are Teaching about 9/11: 10 Essentials We Now Know

Posted on September 11, 2013 at 6:00am 0 Comments

For about the past year, my team and I have been surveying and interviewing US public middle and high-school teachers nationwide about their experiences teaching 9/11. How have they approached teaching today’s students about one of the most painful, important and arguably divisive events in US history? Here’s what they had to say.

1. Most teachers (including history teachers) don’t see teaching about 9/11 as part of their curriculum. According to my survey 84% of teachers who don’t…


Can a classroom stop a genocide?

Posted on August 28, 2013 at 10:47am 12 Comments

Given that people from vastly different cultures naturally will have differing ideas on what “counts” as a human right, is it possible to foster enough consensus that collaboration for human rights across cultures is possible?  I would argue yes, it is possible, and I would go even further.  I say building this consensus around human rights in the 21st century is necessary because the realities of travel and communications technology, as well as an increasingly globalized economy,…


Experiential Peace Curriculum in Morocco

Posted on June 29, 2012 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

I recently had the pleasure of leading a “global hybrid” course to Morocco.  The curriculum was experiential, in that we traveled in country (Ifrane, Fes and Rabat) to attend classes on conflict and development in Morocco, cross cultural workshops and a series of meetings at schools, youth development organizations, human rights advocacy organizations and women’s democratic groups.  Of course, we also made…

Dear Ms Cheryl

Thank you for peace connection. Excellent site features. I hope I'll learn a lot from sharing with you.

Hi Cheryl!

Thank you for replying to my request. Well, Crystina Wyler told me about you, and by reading your profile, I was happy to see a quote of Montessori! we have so much in common, I think... Peace education in schools is what I started last year all by myself, as a volunteer. I managed to convince the school board to give it a try, no money, no demands, just let's see what happens. And when I went into classes, the reply from kids was beyond expectations...i found myself giving 15+ hours a week, for the rest of the year, and kept it on this year too! it will take time, but the school declared itself a non-violent one this year, and we're heading towards creating the first mediation desk in a school here!

Dear Cheryl,

I'm sincerely honored to be a friend of yours. So thanks for the add. Considering your current commitment, I hope you can play a role to help end Angola's belligerent occupation of Cabinda since 1975, and thus end once and for all Angola's ongoing serious crimes of international concern. I wish you all the very best.
