Purchase the PeaceJam Junior Curriculum for our school. It is accessed online with videos, lesson plans, and downloadable information.
Truckee Elementary School received an award for our Blended ELD model. When I attended training last summer in Sacramento, I learned of ways to enhance our Blended ELD program and our school by incorporating the United Nations' Global Goals. The PeaceJam program is one way to expand our global awareness and add to our character education program. The PeaceJam Foundation offers a curriculum for elementary schools. The curriculum includes information and activities so students may learn about Nobel Peace Prize winners. There are also service learning and project based learning components.
From their website:
The PeaceJam Foundation is an international organization whose mission statement is to create young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities, and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates who pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody. The PeaceJam program was launched in February 1996 by co-founders Dawn Engle and Ivan Suvanjieff to provide the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates with a programmatic vehicle to use in working together to teach youth the art of peace. This foundation supports young people working for change through peaceful acts, giving them a platform by which they can be heard.
