9781894549011: Weaving Connections: Educating for Peace, Social and Environmental Justice

Education plays a vitally important role in building foundations for social progress. This remarkable collection describes educational models based on the principles of tolerance, equity and justice developed over the past three decades by teachers, parents, activists and students. In a time of crippling cutbacks and educational reforms designed to promote ‘business’ over ‘education,’ this book is critical reading. Contributors from across Canada discuss the initiatives behind their approaches, how they developed curricula and the future of their educational work:

Anti-Homophobia Initiatives, Tim McCaskell and Vanessa Russell

Multicultural and Anti-Racist Education, Ouida M. Wright

Black Education, Maxine Bramble

Education for Citizenship, Mark Evans and Ian Hundey

Development Education, Louella Cronkhite

Educating for Gender Equity, Lyndsay

Canadian Environmental Education, Constance Russell, Anne Bell and Leesa Fawcett

Global Education, Graham Pike

Examining Assumptions in Health, Gale Smith and Linda Peterat

Widening the Circle of Compassion and Justice, David Selby

Law-Related Education, Wanda Cassidy

Media Education, Barry Duncan, Rick Shepherd and John Pungente, SJ

Moulded Images: First Nations People and Representation, Susan Fletcher

Education Towards a Culture of Peace, V. Floresca-Cawagas and Toh Swee-Hin

Weaving Connections is a call to action by progressive educators, inviting us to cherish educational models that teach us how to live in harmony, respect and balance with one another.
