    Welcome to Facilitating PEACE in the Classroom! Please use these Discussion Boards for the required assignments, but also please feel free to use them to ask questions for further discussion of course topics, (any pressing questions, please email me), share thoughts and/or ideas, or share resources. If you have questions about a student or a school issue you are struggling with us, please use these Discussion Boards to share, bounce ideas, and get advice from your fellow educators. Essentially, these Discussion Boards can be used as you would discuss in the traditional face-to-face classroom setting.
