Creative Conflict Solving for Kids, Grades 4-9. Second Edition.
Schmidt, Fran; Friedman, Alice
Intended to challenge students in grades 4-9 to deal creatively and constructively with conflict, this interdisciplinary resource book contains 40 reproducible student worksheets that can be incorporated into social studies, science, and language arts curricula. Teaching techniques include modeling, mediation, problem-solving, brainstorming, role playing, visualization, body movement, and integration of conflict-resolution concepts. Lessons encourage students to develop positive interpersonal skills, respect human differences, understand the causes of conflict, practice conflict-resolution strategies, learn ways to handle frustration and anger, and explore conflict as a positive force for change within the democratic process. Incorporated within the text, the teacher's guide presents major concepts, important vocabulary, teaching suggestions, discussion questions, and extension activities for each lesson. A posttest concludes the booklet. (LH)
