Violence in the Schools: Developing Prevention Plans. Staff Development Training Manual. Exercises in Participation Series.
Center for Civic Education, Calabasas, CA.
This training manual complements the textbook "Violence in the Schools: Developing Prevention Plans." The curriculum introduces students to the democratic process by involving them in the development of a prevention plan for treating the problem of violence in their school. The manual guides trainers in designing and implementing teacher training programs to assist teachers as they initiate this interactive program in civic education. After explaining how to arrange a training session, the guide suggests two possible schedules for training sessions, depending on whether 3 hours or only 75 minutes are available. As a means of introducing teachers to the program, the manual provides a sample lesson plan on the causes of violence in schools. The appendix includes an evaluation form for the training session, a planning checklist, a form for recording training sessions, and a participant sign-in sheet. (JD)
