Item description for The Young Peacemaker Set [With 12 Student Activity Books] by Corlette Sande & Ross Flint & Associates...
Overview A practical resource for teaching our children (and ourselves) how to respond biblically to conflict. Firmly rooted in Scripture, Sande writes from years of experience as a teacher, counselor, and parent. True peacemaking is possible only with Christ's grace through the work of the Holy Spirit. This material comes in two parts, a parent/teacher manual and a set of student activity books.
Publishers Description The newly reformatted Young Peacemaker Set
The Young Peacemaker Set includes a 200 page Teacher Manual designed in a workbook format, and the appendices can be photocopied for child or student use. Divided into three sections: Understanding, Responding and Preventing Conflict, each lesson has a goal, objectives, principle, and needs clearly outlined at the beginning, and is followed by teacher's notes on setting the stage and questions to ask. Reproducible student activity sheets for all twelve lessons are included on an enclosed CD for ease of duplication. Help illustrate the conflicts and talk about possible solutions--good and bad--and what's wrong with the "bad" solutions. A lesson summary reaffirms the lesson's main points.
Recommended for grades 3-7, but can be adapted for younger or older students.
Community Description Wouldn't it be great to teach children interpersonal skills like we teach them carrying and borrowing in math? We teach children math skills slowly and over time, one concept building upon another until they are prepared to balance their checkbook when they are adults. The Scripture tells us to teach our children Biblical truth in the same way, line upon line, day after day. The Young Peacemaker approaches the subject of resolving personal conflicts in this way; it teaches children the basics of solving people problems. Our children are the future church, yet we recognize that because of our sinful nature our children will have conflicts with other believers that affect the life of the church. It is important for children to understand how to resolve conflict in Biblical ways. We cannot make our children into peacemakers (that is the work of the Spirit of God), but we can give them the necessary skills to resolve conflicts in their adult lives. Holding out for children the high standard of Scripture concerning relationships will point our children to their need for Christ. Therefore, it is always important to teach what is right.
The Young Peacemaker is divided into three parts: Understanding Conflict, Responding to Conflict, and Preventing Conflict. The three parts cover twelve key principles such as "Conflict is a Slippery Slope," "Choices Have Consequences," "Conflict is an Opportunity," and "Forgiveness is a Choice." Each lesson explores one of the twelve key principles, and each student workbook corresponds to one of the twelve key principles. For example, the lesson called "Conflict is a Slippery Slope," examines the various responses we have to conflict. The top of the slippery slope is the proper response of "working it out." If you slide down the slippery slope to the right you enter the danger zone of the "attack" response and if you slide down the slope to the left you enter the danger zone of the "escape" response. Both responses to the left or right are wrong and staying on top of the slippery slope is right. A simple diagram that children will remember illustrates the concept of the slippery slope. The student booklet covers the same theme with a story done in comic book style. By the time you have taught all twelve lessons, children will gain wonderful Biblical insight into resolving conflict.

Great material! Mar 8, 2007
I look forward to using this with my 8 and 11 year olds.
I'm a Teacher and I say this stuff is good! Feb 26, 2007
This is my tenth year teaching and my third year using The Young Peacemaker materials. A month ago, the teachers in the grade after mine agreed that this material makes such a difference that they recommended that every student be required to study it. I am also a trained Christian conciliator. From my experience, if we can get these principles into young people, they will be much more effective problem solvers and people winners as adults. ~ Scott Hayden BA El. Ed.; MS in Teaching
Great Tool for Teaching Kids How to Manage Conflict Feb 15, 2002
This volume, written by Corlette Sande, the wife of Ken Sande, who authored the Peacemaker, is another resource from Peacemaker Ministries that applies biblical principles of peacemaking to the unique challenges of intermediate and middle school students. The Teacher/Student Manual is designed in a workbook format, and the appendices can be photocopied for child or student use. Student Activity Books are also available for each of the twelve lesson series. This is excellent material to be used in Christian schools, home schools, Bible classes, or better yet in the home as parents and children study and practice the principles together.
THANK-YOU!, Our family is happily at PEACE! Jun 14, 2000
Our family received this book recently from a dear friend. This book and Student Activity Booklets are amazing. They have clearly equipped our family and especially our four children with skills to prevent and resolve conflict in a constructive and biblically faithful manner. We are spending less time fussing and feuding and more time enjoying true family fun. Thumbs Up!
17 years of youth work: this is the best youth material yet Sep 7, 1999
I have been in youth work for 17 years and this is the best youth material I have found. Corlette Sande has put together Biblical advice and principles that will help any child understand conflict resolution as God sees it. I was so impressed by the material that I bought her husbands book and have begun to share with our congregation how God has called us to be Peacemakers and the steps God has given to us to insure this goal. As a christian counselor I was ecstatic to find material that I could agree with that so well done. I have never recommended any other youth material but have called all of my fellow youth workers, counselors, and homeschoolers and have recommended this material.
