This lesson is based on a contribution by Christine Pescatore
Procedure: Share these selection of poems focusing on peace and justice with your students and then open a discussion using the follow up questions.
Taking it Farther: Questions can also be used to inspire students to write essays and poems of their own or to create an artwork or poster illustrating that quote.
Here are some sources of poems and quotes to get you started.
We offer books, activities, lesson plans, and ideas that teachers, parents, and students can use to promote values, attitudes and behaviors which encourage non-violent resolution of conflict, respect for human rights, democracy, intercultural understanding and tolerance.
