Creative Conflict Solving for Kids: Grades 3-4.
Schmidt, Fran; Friedman, Alice
Conflict resolution skills can be taught just as any other basic skill is taught, and this is the message of this curriculum and guide. Peace education is a life-affirming celebration of life and a holistic approach to human interaction. Conflict is a natural part of life, and children can be taught the skills to deal constructively with conflict. Each teacher page contains teacher remarks, the materials needed for the lesson, suggestions for discussions and how to introduce the student work pages, and ways to identify the focus of each lesson Lessons use brainstorming, role-playing, problem solving, "I-Care" listening and language techniques, body movement, and visualization. The Peace Table is suggested as a place for students to talk out conflict, and mediation is presented as an approach to conflict resolution. Appendix 1 contains a communication game. Appendix B is a glossary. Appendix C is an annotated bibliography of 52 items. (SLD)
