Materials in this teacher handbook utilize the interrelated themes of communication and conflict resolution to develop global awareness among primary grade students. The nine lessons can be divided into 5 categories as follows: lesson 1, development of the child's self-concept; lessons 2-4, development of non-verbal communication skills; lesson 5, application of these skills to an exploration of human likenesses and differences; lesson 6, awareness of perception and misperception; and lessons 7-9, introduction to the concept of conflict as a normal and natural part of life. Within each lesson, areas of study, purpose, objectives, necessary class time, materials, and a variety of activities are described. Handouts, discussion questions, and bibliographies are also provided where applicable. (LP)
