Lowell Revitalization: One Student Conflict Manager at a Time
Lane-Garon, Pamela S.
Metropolitan Universities, v21 n3 p67-79 Jul 2011
This article summarizes the initial, collaborative implementation efforts of a school-based conflict resolution program. Lowell elementary School is predominately Hispanic and located in one of the poorest areas of Fresno. The University's Kremen School of Education and Human Development partners with local educators to train children in grades four through six in conflict resolution and mediation skills. The Mediator Mentors project has demonstrated its replicability in over sixty schools. Process steps at Lowell School in conjunction with Fresno's Revitalization Project are enumerated and first results are identified. (Contains 3 figures.)
