Teaching About the Wars

Teaching About the Wars breaks the curricular silence on the U.S. military engagement in Afghanistan and the Middle East. Even though the United States has been at war continuously since just after 9/11, sometimes it seems that our schools have forgotten. This collection of insightful articles and hands-on lessons shows that teachers have found ways to prompt their students to think critically about big issues. Here is the best writing fromRethinking Schools magazine on war and peace in the 21st century.

Teaching About the Wars is divided into five chapters:

    Introduction: Breaking the Silence on War
    The Road to War
    The Human Face of War
    Military Recruitment
    Anti-War Resistance

Contributing authors include Bill Bigelow, Ann Pelo, Margot Pepper, Bob Peterson, Özlem Sensoy, and Howard Zinn

While The Resistance Center received the best response from schools in our four years of compiling the report, our findings remained the same: military recruiters are active in our children’s schools and, more often than not, schools are not keeping records of recruiter involvement.
