Teaching Young Children in Violent Times helps teachers and group leaders working with pre-K to 3rd-graders to create an environment in which young children can learn alternatives to the violent behaviors modeled in our society, the media and home. Mixing dialogs, anecdotes and theory, the book provides essential insights into the developmental roots of young children's thinking and behaviors around gender, prejudice, violence and conflict. It offers practical guidelines and activities for meeting young children's needs for safety; helping young children learn to appreciate diversity; and providing opportunities and skills to resolve conflicts creatively and respectfully. This rich resource also supplies suggestions for using dialogue, puppetry, games, play, class charts, curriculum webs, and children's books to turn any classroom into a peaceable one.

Diane Levin is a widely known and respected educator and researcher who co-authored The War Play Dilemma and the best-selling Who's Calling the Shots?

From Booklist:

Levin, a teacher and a therapist calls for the creation of a "peaceable classroom" to counteract the overpowering effect of violence in the media and community. Before offering her own solution for teachers and parents, she examines how violence in entertainment, news, and neighborhoods affects small children. Specifics on role-playing, group discussions, puppetry, and peaceful games are spelled out. Appended are relevant official statements from the National Association for the Education of Young Children and Concerned Educators Allied for a Safe Environment and a commentary on the Power Rangers. Levin is the coauthor of Who's Calling the Shots: How to Respond Effectively to Children's Fascination with War Play and War Toys (1990). Denise Perry Donavin
