Fighting Fair. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for Kids. Second Edition.
Schmidt, Fran; Friedman, Alice
This curriculum guide for grades 4 through 9 uses the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to teach conflict resolution and to explore the philosophy of non-violence for daily life. To enable students to learn and apply non-violence, it must be modeled in a classroom environment that builds trust and a sense of community. Each of the following sections of the Teacher's Guide contains student activity suggestions: (1) "See Yourself"; (2) "A Strong Man"; (3) "People Power"; (4) "Fighting Back"; (5) "Confronting Fear"; (6) "You Are You, I Am Me, We Are Us, Us Are We"; and (7) "The Power of Nonviolence." An appendix contains a Peacemaker certificate as a student award and a list of 10 other resources. Student pages parallel the teacher guide, in the same chapter format. Role playing is a significant part of the student activities suggested; and brainstorming, problem solving, and decision making are also promoted. An 18-minute video completes the program. Scenes from the civil rights movement are used to help students understand the dynamics of non-violence. (SLD)
