Why a Peace Curriculum?
“The Science of Peace, were it to become a special discipline, would be the most noble of all, for the very life of humanity depends on it. So, also perhaps, does the question of whether our entire civilization evolves or disappears.”
-Maria Montessori, 1932
Welcome to peace101 (pax101)… this web-site is dedicated to fulfilling the ideals of Maria Montessori, who in 1948, earned a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for her “Education for Peace.”
Peace 101 is an interactive educational CD based on the Montessori Method. This CD was created for teachers and children in the classroom. The ages for this CD is 3 1/2 to 10 years old.
We hope to create a new “digital path” that allows access to these ideas that have such far- reaching importance for the future of our species, and indeed our planet.
