To educate children toward peace and a productive resolution of conflict instead toward inurement to war and violence the following goals are set forth: developing a respect for all life; recognizing and respecting cultural and social differences among individuals; solving problems of socialization; developing a concept of world citizenship; stimulating parents to adopt a philosophy of peace education; and developing in children the freedom to think critically and learn humanistically. A unit for inculcating these goals in kindergarten children focuses on the concepts of interdependence and conflict resolution. Activities and resources aimed at developing self-confidence and a sense of self-worth and acceptance are coordinated with these concepts. Included are lists of books, films, records, and other instructional materials. (JH)
