Show synopsis For use with upper elementary and middle school students. Imagine a school or classroom where learners manage and resolve their own conflicts, where students and teachers cooperate, where diversity is celebrated, where feelings are expressed in ways that are neither aggressive nor destructive, where responsibility is the norm. Creating the Peaceable School presents a workable plan for achieving this vision. Through the conflict resolution strategies of mediation, negotiation, and group problem solving, students learn to recognize, manage, and resolve conflicts in peaceful, noncoercive ways. The Program Guide includes 63 learning activities; step-by-step teaching procedures; guidelines for program organization, implementation, and maintenance; sample letters, contracts, and forms; examples of role-play situations; and more.
