Teaching Young Children In Violent Times
by Diane E. Levin and Deborah Prothrow-Stith

The new edition of this highly acclaimed book is a must for early childhood educators, parents, and policy makers. It helps teachers create a Peaceable Classroom, where children learn peaceful alternatives to the violent behaviors modeled for them in society. This extensively revised and updated edition features new material for a post-September 11th world including a new chapter on helping children deal with violence in the news.

"Building a Peaceable Classroom" is one of my favorite books, and sadly, it is needed today more than ever. Diane gives teachers a wealth of practical and positive strategies for helping children solve problems peacefully and live respectfully with others. She suggests ways to help children cope with their fears in an increasingly unsafe world. It is a perfect complement to any early childhood curriculum." —Diane Trister Dodge, President, Teaching Strategies, Inc.

Diane E. Levin, Ph.D. is a Professor of Education at Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts, where she teachers courses on children's play, media, and violence. Dr. Levin is also a Research Associate at the Center for Peaceable Schools at Lesley University and a co-founder of Teachers Resisting Unhealthy Children's Entertainment (TRUCE), and the coalition to Stop Commercial Exploitation of Children (SCEC).
