Annotation: This book outlines ways to help children ages 5-12 settle the conflicts that tend to be among the most common in their lives.
Abstract: It addresses general conflicts and five areas of concentration: bullying, conflicts arising out of diversity, gender-based conflicts, conflicts related to the media, and conflicts involving guns or other weapons. Framed around classroom-based activities and written for teachers, the guidelines can be used by any adult with any group of children. Each of the activities in the book can stand alone, can supplement other work or can be blended into an ongoing curriculum. Each chapter includes an overview of the topic, a checklist of tips for action by the teacher, and activities section with activities for each age group, followup activities with additional ideas, a list of related children's books, worksheets for the chapter's activities, and a letter to parents that can be reproduced and sent home with children to foster understanding about the seriousness of the topic and provide concrete suggestions for what parents can do at home to help their children.
