1. Working together as a class, access the Carter Center for Peace website and list the areas of involvement noted (the teacher may wish to do this and present the list to the class).
2. Divide the class into groups (into as many groups as there are areas of involvement, making certain to include the five major peace programs and the seven health programs, including Every Child by Two; or, into fewer groups by combining several programs; or into just two groups, peace and health).
3. Have students read about the programs and present their findings to the class. Then, ask the students which programs should be cut if funding was reduced. Ask them to look at the consequences of each cut. The teacher may use this as a homework assignment and have students write a persuasive essay to “save” their favorite area of involvement.
