Description


A PRACTICAL AND UP-TO-DATE GUIDE FOR WORKING WITH TEENS ON SOCIAL JUSTICE


Allan Creighton and Paul Kivel, veteran youth educators and community activists, have revised their classic book on violence prevention for today's youth. Updating the tools and discussions in the book, the authors maintain the positive message of their successful first edition. They also include detailed suggestions for connecting it to the other components of the Making the Peace program: the Making the Peace, Making Allies, Making Friends, and Days of Respect curricula.


IGNITING THE HOPE AND IDEALISM OF YOUTH


Without ignoring the many challenges facing teens, the authors emphasize that those who work with youth today have as many opportunities as they do obstacles. Creighton and Kivel use their decades of experience with teens to offer:


  • a framework and vocabulary for teaching violence prevention and social justice
  • road-tested exercises for adult, staff and youth training and development
  • guidelines for facilitating discussions on sensitive contemporary issues

These tools have been used successfully in schools, residential programs, after-school and recreation programs, youth detention facilities, and colleges and universities. Any adult determined to help young people become active, critically thinking community members will find a strong ally in this empowering resource.
