21st Century “Children’s Crusade”: A Curriculum of Peace Driven by Critical Literacy

P.L. Thomas, Pg. 15-30

Abstract

The traditional public school classroom reflects and perpetuates a patriotic norm that embraces the permanent state of war as well as supporting a pro-U.S. perspective on those wars. This essay examines the need for texts that promote peace and reject the permanent state of war. As well, the discussion couches the peace-based curriculum within the need for critical pedagogy and critical literacy to drive that curriculum in order to confront the norms of schooling and society.
