Blending conflict resolution with academic content has never come more easily than this middle-school level guide. You'll find it easy to link peacemaking concepts and skills to selected topics in a typical American History class. Lessons on conflict escalation and de-escalation, communication skills, perspective taking, and more help adolescents see more broadly that these skills apply not only to their own lives, but everywhere, and today as much as ever.
