As concern over youth violence continues to grow-and with disruptive behavior a common concern in classrooms across the nation-the need to build a safe and supportive classroom community has never been greater. To help teachers in grades 4-12 reach this goal, A Powerful Peace: The Integrative Thinking Classroom provides research-backed strategies and thoroughly developed activities for effective conflict resolution and critical thinking instruction. Its curriculum overlay approach integrates conflict resolution and critical thinking into content area instruction through the communication process-reading, writing, speaking, and listening-while requiring minimal planning, additions, disruptions, or cost. With over 150 flexible, easy-to-perform activities, it is a valuable tool for creating the safe community that is essential for effective learning.
