Trish Beckett B.A., B.Ed.
Peace Literacy Curriculum Developer
Trish Beckett, BA, B.Ed., is a retired special education teacher who received bachelor degrees from The Ohio State University and Edgewood College in Madison, WI.
Her teaching background working with adolescents with emotional and learning disabilities helped her develop an awareness of the importance of Peace Literacy in the public school setting. She is a graduate of the 2013 Peace Literacy Summer Workshop and has made substantial use of Peace Literacy in her teaching. She has shared with us a set of lesson plans for high school students called Waging Peace. In February 2017, 150 students (9-12 graders) at Oshkosh North High School in Wisconsin implemented a version of her Waging Peace curriculum. She has given us a report from the field based on her experience with the lesson plans in Oshkosh. When Beckett isn’t working on developing Peace Literacy curriculum, she delights in time with her granddaughters, creates quilts, and has walked 300 miles across Spain on the Camino de Santiago.
