About this book

Carter and Pickett explore how educators and families can teach peace education through youth literature and literacy development. Showing how to assess, choose, and make use of literature that can be used to teach both literacy and peace education, they walk through individual methods: recognizing and teaching different portrayals of conflict in youth literature, analyzing characterization, and examining the role of illustrations. Educators who want to incorporate peace education within a broader, literacy-focused curriculum, and peace educators looking for age-appropriate materials and methodologies will find Youth Literature for Peace Education a rich and interdisciplinary resource.

Reviews

"In this important contribution to peace education scholarship, the authors explore the nexus of peace and literacy intertwining goals for the world's children. Teachers, students, and families will find this compendium of youth literature enormously helpful as they consider ways that peace, conflict prevention, and human harmony can be advanced through prose." - Bárbara C. Cruz, Professor of Social Science Education, University of South Florida, USA

"This rich description of literature on peace education for young people will be enormously useful for both teachers and parents. The descriptions are plentiful, powerful, and inviting." - Nel Noddings, Professor of Education Emerita, Stanford University, USA
