"Carter and Pickett explore how educators and families can teach peace education through youth literature and literacy development. Showing how to assess, choose, and make use of literature that can be used to teach both literacy and peace education, they walk through individual methods: recognizing and teaching different portrayals of conflict in youth literature, analyzing characterization, and examining the role of illustrations. Educators who want to incorporate peace education within a broader, literacy-focused curriculum, and peace educators looking for age-appropriate materials and methodologies will find Youth Literature for Peace Education a rich and interdisciplinary resource"--

A Review of the Literature on the Cognitive Effects of Integrated Curriculum by Candice C Carter( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper reviews empirical research on the effects of integrated curriculum. It begins by describing the rationale for integrated curriculum and categorizing the approaches found in the literature into four types: (1) intradisciplinary; (2) interdisciplinary; (3) infused; and (4) correlated. Then, focusing on kindergarten-grade 12 integrated curriculum research conducted between 1986 and 1996, the results of 13 studies are presented. Finally, the research methods used in these studies are examined, and recommendations are made for future research on integrated curriculum. Although researchers often assert that integrated curriculum creates positive effects, it is concluded that recent research comparing integrated and traditional curriculum shows no differences.

Conflict Mediation at School: Peace Through Avoidance? by Candice C Carter( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined the outcomes of student conflict mediation at two urban middle schools in California. Data collection involved observations, interviews, and instrumentation with the Mediation Rating Profile (C. Carter, 1998), and a writing prompt. Several mediation agreements contained avoidance resolutions, such as "stay away from each other." Communication gaps existed in the typical conflict mediation intervention that allowed for reproductive resolutions; transformative resolutions were limited to the avoidance of violence. The conflict mediation intervention needs to help students attain a productive resolution, one that is just for all students and will improve their relations, especially when students' conflicts have the potential for recurrence and violence.
