Peacemaking Skills for Little Kids. Second Edition. Revised.
Schmidt, Fran; And Others
Peace education is a holistic and life-affirming process of skill building that empowers children to find creative and non-destructive ways to settle conflicts. The curriculum is built around the following concepts: (1) the basis for a peaceful world is an environment where children become friends, work and play cooperatively, and respect the interdependence of all living things; (2) we are all similar, yet unique human beings, who enjoy our commonalities, and accept our differences; (3) feelings are a bond we all share; and (4) peacemaking skills help us get along as responsible members of the human family. Each concept is reinforced by activities and visual aids to make the curriculum easy to use. Student pages are provided for use in grades 1 and 2. An annotated bibliography lists 192 books for children related to peacemaking skills. (SLD)
