MasterPEACE Teacher Training

Teachers from Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School, Uplift Charter Schools, L.L. Hotchkiss Elementary and the Maya Angelou High School for Pregnant and Parenting Teens attended last Saturday’s training session.

The entire month of October has been full of MasterPEACE training sessions. Teachers, counselors and staff from ten different schools/organizations were represented in the training.   A 235-page full-color online instructional manual has been produced that teachers are using to bring the 14 art-based lessons on peace and nonviolence to many new classrooms.

MasterPEACE: Young Artists Making a Kinder World has achieved great success in the past year, its fourth in Dallas classrooms. In these four years our staff and volunteer corps of 30 artists and instructors taught the program to over 3,000 children in 16 schools.  This Pilot program to train teachers to conduct the art-based lessons themselves will bring MasterPEACE to thousands more children.

MasterPEACE Facebook Group has been created to encourage sharing of ideas, experiences and student artwork as the teachers/counselors start to conduct the MasterPEACE lessons.
