PeaceJam UK has been working with schools and youth groups since 2006 through its education programmes and teacher-friendly resources.
We offer a range of curricula suitable for ages 5-18. These resources draw on the lives of the Nobel Peace Laureates as positive role models to encourage children and teenagers to discuss controversial issues of diversity, tolerance, social justice, conflict, and non-violence.
The resources include:
PeaceJam resources have been used very successfully with a range of young people, from those struggling to engage with school to the most academic.
The materials have been designed by a former teacher, for teachers and educationalists.
Each lesson plan has been carefully mapped to show how it meets UK educational standards, with different learning outcomes by ability range in the class, and handy worksheets you can print out or photocopy. They can be used in core lessons (such as RE, Citizenship, PSHE or History), or in lunchtime and after-school clubs, or drop-down days.
