Resolving Conflicts. Lawyers Helping Young People Become Good Citizens.
American Bar Association, Chicago, IL. Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship.
Organized around the theme of conflict resolution, this booklet provides teachers and lawyers with classroom materials for elementary grades K-3 (Level A), intermediate grades 4-6 (Level B), middle school grades 6-8 (Level C), and high school grades 9-12 (Level D). In addition, each level contains pages for the lawyer (marked by the scales of justice), the teacher (an apple), and the student (a pencil). The booklet contains lesson plans, activities, a student community service survey, and an evaluation form for lawyers using the materials. The lessons and activities ask students to investigate the meaning of conflict, the sources of conflict in their lives, and the various ways conflicts might be resolved. The inside front cover provides tips for lawyers preparing classroom presentations. A poster titled "Where Do School Conflicts Happen?" is included. (TSV)
