Teaching Peace to our youth in their classrooms has never been more important than now in this time of perpetual wars. Our Youth are saturated with violent and militarized entertainment choices now including militarized video games that normalize war and killing and desensitize them to the reality of real violence in the world around them. Teachers who seek to balance this narrative with the stories and histories of those who oppose war and violence  develop the capacity for compassion in their students.

For High School Students - Notes and Images From the Vietnam War from Jill Godmilow on Vimeo.

"Here's a film for high school students and their teachers about the history of the Viet Nam War, composed of just photographs from that war, narration and, to help us through a damned disheartening story, lots of the Bach Suite for Solo Cello #1 in G. The film is 45 minutes long––perfect for classroom use and repeated screenings by students on their own. It's my response to the flawed Ken Burn/Lynn Novick 18-hour PBS series, The Vietnam War... too long for the classroom and failing in many ways as a useful account of the tragic Viet Nam war. It’s free to stream or download the film from this website, so teachers, help yourselves. I’ve also provided a curriculum, produced by the Zinn Education Project’s Rethinking Schools for teaching this film, and some additional useful writings for understanding the Viet Nam War. I recommend that teachers warn their students that the film is highly critical of the Viet Nam War. Teachers should also warn students in advance that this material can be upsetting. But I believe young adults can, and must, grapple with this grim history and the presence of this war, in order to avoid repeating it."  - Jill Godmilow
