Book Description

2 Oct 2009 0982557809 978-0982557808
PEACE CAN HAPPEN, ONE STUDENT AT A TIME. For eleven years, educator Catherine Cadden ran the bold experiment called TEMBA, a K-8 academic school based on the tenets of nonviolence and founded on the conviction that children who have the opportunity to practice peace in the classroom wouldn't just survive school - they'd thrive. Packed with real-world examples from the TEMBA classroom and the author's twenty-two years of "front-line" experience in classrooms on five continents, Peaceable Revolution Through Education offers practical everyday guidance for creating peace in today's learning environments. From tantrums to cellphones to total chaos, Cadden shows us the human beings behind the behaviors, and demonstrates what's possible when the opportunity is taken to build connection. This book dives to the root of the issues, offering insightful looks at the underlying causes of learner struggle, apathy, and rebellion, and dispelling common myths about children and the nature of learning. From a public high school in South San Francisco to a Waldorf elementary school in South Africa; from a U.N. guarded "classroom" in Kabul, Afghanistan to a Montessori kindergarden in Kansas City, Kansas, ultimately, the author's journey is a reminder that no matter where we come from and no matter where we're going, we are human beings and we love to learn.

A revolutionary book, just as the title implies, inspiring, moving, for anyone with children or working with children - or adults, in education...recommending it to all. What a world we will live in, how much more content our kids, and us, will be when we embrace this approach...

5.0 out of 5 stars What we all could learn today! 23 Jan 2010
By Margaret Reilly - Published on

I found this book to be incredibly inspiring and enlightening. I am not a teacher, but you don't need to be to get a lot out of this book. The way Catherine developed and promoted peaceful learning in her classrooms is really amazing. I found that I need to take a look at how I personally handle conflict in my own life. The fact that these children are learning to respect themselves and each other in a peaceful way, and at such a young age is so encouraging. We all could learn a lot from this book. You are never too old to learn...especially now, with so much violence and despair in the world. Think of this book as your own little contribution to promoting peace in the world! Thank you Catherine!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book I want to give to everyone I know! 8 Aug 2010

"When we ignore what is alive in us while trying only to engage the intellectual processes of the students we automatically invite rebellion." -Cadden

Catherine Cadden shows us how to tap into what is alive in ourselves and in our students. Her invitation for us to be curious and undetermined is a path toward true revolution. Using true stories, hard hitting facts, and inspiring quotes from peace elders, this book make a compassionate rationale for change. Anyone who works, or lives, with people who have experienced "formal" education can benefit from reading "Peaceable Revolution Through Education".

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read this book!!! 24 Oct 2009
By Ronald D. Cooper - Published on
I just finished reading this book and I was inspired and joyful. Going beyond the structure of our present educational system and treating students with respect and authenticity is what education should be. Non violent communication should be mandatory in all schools. Learing to be a responsible, caring, human being is more important than the 3 R's.

Thank you Catherine for having the courage to step outside the box and exploring the true meaning of what it is to educate.

I loved reading this book. I have done workshops with Catherine and wish she lived in Australia so I could learn more from her, but this book helped me to reconnect with my purpose in becoming a teacher in the first place. It also helped me to receive empathy for my frustrations with the current education system and to wish to make a difference.
