The most prominent activists working in the fields of conflict resolution and emotional literacy argue that schools as our children's last common public institution in a fractured time must educate the heart as well as the mind.
Linda Lantieri and Janet Patti show us how it can be done. They draw on the latest research in social and emotional learning, as well as on their years of experience with thousands of kids and teachers through the Resolving Conflict Creatively Program one of the largest and most successful of its kind in the country, serving over 150,000 children in more than 325 schools nationwide. Waging Peace in Our Schools is news from the front the essential primer on a movement that is transforming our schools.
The book is a practical guide, filled with stories, voices, ideas, and advice. We see teachers using innovative techniques to create 'peaceable classrooms,' student mediators who are changing the lives of their schools, and the core curricula of conflict resolution and diversity education.
'Waging Peace in Our Schools is a model of emotional intelligence. . . . I hope that every teacher and parent reads this, and takes this superb advice to heart.'
