Notes from Nonviolence: Level I Assessment

Day Six of the 12th International Nonviolence Summer Institute is a short but somewhat stressful one.  After a week of participating in, digging deep into, and studying the content of the two-day Kingian Nonviolent Conflict Resolution training we take an assessment of our knowledge.

In other words, we take a test!

The written assessment covers a wide range of theory, history, and King's philosophy.  Its twenty questions are as complex and rich as the training itself.  It takes 2-3 hours for most to complete.

Thankfully, our group has spent much time both in the formal training process and informally in our free time working to understand and remember the information.  The remaining week of training will involve us mastering how to facilitate the two-day curriculum.

The Forum, in URI's Multiculutural Center, is usually full of voices talking through nonviolence.  Today it was silent as we all completed the assessment.
