Advocates for Peace is a grades 7–12 project-based learning unit developed by Students Rebuild and the Buck Institute for Education as part of the Facing Difference Challenge. I was tasked to design and produce the course materials for this and its K–6 partner unit.
In the project, Advocates for Peace, students explore peacebuilding efforts around the world and conduct research on local issues. After identifying a local issue, project teams design a policy proposal for a possible solution and present their thinking to a relevant audience of community members and key stakeholders whom they hope to move to action. This solution is grounded in successful international examples of peacebuilding and tailored to the community it is intended to serve. Though the standards focus of Advocates for Peace is grades 9-10, the content strands (e.g., argumentative writing) were selected so that educators could adapt this project anywhere along the 7–12 span and in any context, including international ones. This unit includes both educator planning and student-facing resources.

Peace by Piece is a K–6 project-based learning unit developed by Students Rebuild and the Buck Institute for Education as part of the Facing Difference Challenge. I was tasked to design and produce the course materials for this and its grades 7–12 partner unit.
Peace by Piece is a Project Based Learning (PBL) unit designed to engage students in leadership through advocacy for peaceful solutions to local or community conflicts. In Peace Teams, students delve deeply into local peacebuilding needs and design a solution. International examples of peacebuilding efforts will be used to inform team solutions. Students will advocate for their peaceful proposal to a public audience of stakeholders such as other students, school leadership, and community members during a student-led Peace Summit. The standards focus of this interdisciplinary unit is grade 3; however, the content strands (e.g., narrative writing) are such that educators can adapt this project for grades K–6 in any context, including international ones. This unit includes both educator planning and student-facing resources.

In 2014 and in conjunction with his book of the same name, journalist, personality, wrestler, and author Bob Calhoun set out to pitch a television series about his convention shenanigans. I put together this five page pilot treatment sent to prospective producers via email. These efforts culminated in the series being picked up online at Meetings Today. The Brony episode is a personal favorite.
