The Relational Literacy Curriculum: *offers a powerful method for children to reflect on challenging interpersonal episodes and to discern constructive patterns of relating through discussion and role play;*provides a process that can serve as both a prevention tool and a vehicle for managing immediate conflict;*gives teachers a strong theoretical framework from which they can make principled decisions, and aflexible format for implementing it that they can adapt to meet the particular social needs of their classroom context; and*promotes teacher reflection and learning through the use of various observational tools. This book addresses the question of why it is important to study relationships in the elementary classroom; reviews the research and literature that inform the relational literacy curriculum; lays out the process of the curriculum; explains how the curriculum can be used to address real conflicts within the classroom community; and provides guiding principles for practice. It is a useful resource for classroom teachers, school psychologists, school counselors and social workers, and a valuable text for a range of courses, including classroom management, psycho-social interventions, child development, and early childhood education.
