Annotated Bibliography for Teaching Conflict Resolution in Schools. Second Edition.
The print and audiovisual materials in this annotated bibliography are divided into three categories: (1) Those in the implementation section (72 items) give reasons for starting a conflict resolution program and ways in which programs improve school climate. There are also materials on establishing and evaluating programs. (2) The skill building section (92 items) contains materials that teach communication, problem solving, brainstorming, and evaluation skills. Some of the items suggest a unit on conflict without training students to be mediators or conflict managers, and others focus on negotiation instead of mediation. All are specifically concerned about the process of mediation and conflict resolution as traditionally understood. Human relations and problem solving skills are also included in this section. (3) The related fields section (61 items) includes materials that represent more general views of conflict resolution such as peace education or specific aspects such as substance abuse, but all bear directly on conflict resolution training. Annotations are generally brief and include a grade level indication. An appendix lists names and addresses of publishers and distributors. (JB)
