Project VIP. Violence Is Preventable. Level 2.
Stevens, Doug; Keller, Amy
Project VIP (Violence Is Preventable) is a comprehensive research-based program designed to help children and young adults make smart choices about violence. It emphasizes the use of student-centered approaches to help develop strategies for conflict resolution and for avoiding violence. The student book is a workbook with a number of activities; the "Leader's Guide" provides resources the teacher or leader can use to implement the project effectively. Level 2 helps students, aged 11 to 14 years, work cooperatively and independently to role-play authentic situations and solve problems that can lead to violence. The age-appropriate activities focus on the middle-school years and include a section on violence in the news. The "Leader's Guide" provides the resources the teacher or leader needs to conduct workbook activities with the students. A letter explaining the program to parents is included, as is a reproducible certificate of program completion. (SLD)
