Aggression: Using Children's Stories with Conflict Themes To Help Four-Year-Olds Deal with Aggressive Behaviors in the Classroom.
There are many behaviors that young children must deal with, one of these being aggression. One strategy teachers can use to help children deal with aggressive behavior is reading children's stories with conflict themes. Stories encourage children's participation and discussion, enabling them to better communicate their often confusing emotions. Research strongly suggests that aggression is environmentally transmitted. In regards to the four-year-old, aggression is normal, healthy behavior that arises as a need to define "self" in relation to others. Contains a bibliography of 15 recommended children's books with conflict themes and 12 references. (Author)
