Using the children's book "Best Day of the Week" as a starting point, this manual describes how teachers of young children can begin to build conflict resolution skills in ways that are both meaningful to children and embedded in their everyday school experiences.

Part 1, "Before You Begin," contains these chapters: (1) "Why Teach Conflict Resolution to Young Children?"; (2) "How Young Children Make Sense of Conflict Resolution"; and (3) "Concepts and Skills Underlying Conflict Resolution." Part 2, "Teaching Conflict Resolution with 'Best Day of the Week,'" contains these chapters: (4) "Skills and Ideas Embedded in 'Best Day of the Week'"; (5) "Using 'Best Day of the Week' to Talk about Conflict Resolution"; (6) "Teaching Specific Skills: Conflicts and How They Get Worse"; and (7) "Teaching Specific Skills: Conflicts and How They Get Better."
