This book is about teaching students to be peacemakers. It includes practical strategies and specific activities to teach students conflict resolution procedures and skills to reduce violence in schools. By training students in conflict resolution, educators can help school environments become more orderly and peaceful while instruction is improving. David and Roger Johnson offer an approach that involves interrelated programs for preventing violence and helping students learn to resolve conflicts constructively. They discuss how schools can create a cooperative learning environment where students learn how to negotiate and mediate peer conflicts and teachers use academic controversies to enhance learning.
