A Strategy to Develop a Concept of Peace as Conflict Resolution.
Belden, George B.
A teaching strategy designed to help elementary students conceptualize about peace as a process of conflict resolution is described. The Baboon Troop and Netsilik Eskimo materials of "Man: A Course of Study" provide the course content in which the students learn that cooperation is the most important ingredient in group survival. Classroom procedures focus on viewing films, reading booklets about conflict, conflict resolution, and other factors involved in social interaction. Students discuss the materials with peers and with the teacher who acts as a "consultant." The strategy works to the degree that 200 ten-year-olds conceptualized peace as sociable activity, a more abstract level than formerly thought possible. The major importance of using this peace strategy is that the use of high interest materials about foreign peoples beginning at age ten helps students conceptualize about peace at more abstract levels.
