    Peace by PEACE provided my fifth graders with a safe space to explore alternatives for negotiating situations of conflict. They examined the role of identity and how to shift perspectives in order to promote a deeper understanding of diversity. Peace by PEACE allowed my students a time for reflection, shaping who they are and what they believe in ways that promoted appreciation for differences.

    They help us learn more about conflict resolution. It was really just a learning experience for both us and the students. One thing that always comes back to me is 5th graders can do this, 5th graders can understand this, then seriously world leaders really should.
