This is a post I wrote back in 2001.. there was not scoop.it at the time... So I decided to post it here.. since there are so many EFL professors from Venezuela, who could profit from this discussion list... or are discussion list out of fashion?... any way.. It's worth to spread the word on this wonderful discussion list for  and by Venezuelan EFL educators...

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

As we continue working on our Avatar for peace project, we keep on finding gems on the road... this is From Marisa Contantinides, a wonderful language educator... She explains here why teaching about peace is a good idea for language learners or any kind of learner...

 

Educating for Peace requires improvement or development of the following:

Becoming a good communicator – improving communication skills

Developing the ability to resolve conflicts

Improving understanding and developing empathy for others

Developing the ability to view issues from a multiple perspective

Developing critical thinking

 

There is also a need for knowing things. Learners who know very little about the world and others will need help with:

Improvement of general knowledge

Knowledge of the target language community

Knowledge of their own country and their own culture

Knowledge of cultures other than their own

 

Finally, educating for peace requires more self-confidence and improvement of self-image in our learners.
