Teaching Children Compassionately
The tenets of Nonviolent Communication are applied to a variety of settings, including the classroom and the home, in these booklets on how to resolve conflict peacefully. Illustrative exercises, sample stories, and role-playing activities offer the opportunity for self-evaluation, discovery, and application.
Skills for creating a successful classroom are included in this transcription of a keynote address and workshop given to a national conference of Montessori educators. Describing the counterproductive role that power and punishment currently play in schools, this treatise challenges educators to inspire cooperation without using demands, strengthening student interest and classroom community from within.
