  • Peace in Our Communities: A teaching and learning package for primary schools

    This resource may be aligned to the Australian Curriculum: English [Literature Strand] to create a variety of literacy text across all year levels.

    These posters are also valuable within a Civics and Citizenship  or Communications unit of work at any year level.

    Written by Tracey Linnane; ISBN 0 9581625 2 2 

    Includes: A collection of 18 quality, full colour A3 posters (6 each for years P-2, 3-5 and 6-7); a teaching plan and student worksheets on CD-ROM and an A3 Display Folder.

    A list of strategic questions, developed for use with each peace poster, has been printed on the back of each poster to aid use by teachers during discussions with students. The peace posters and accompanying questions may be used with individual students, in small groups or with the whole class when conducting substantive conversations as part of discussions.

    Long-term educational aim is to foster in children: increased awareness of the concept of ‘peace’ in their communities; how it contributes to their lives; and ways in which we think, feel and act peaceably in order to live a healthy, happy and fulfilled life. An important aspect is to assist children to link their understandings, capabilities and attitudes of ‘peace’ with the sacrifices made by our Australian service men and women from the past and present, as we advocate and strive for peace in our lives today.
