Conflict Resolution and United States History is the result of ten years of work with historians, conflict resolution practitioners and teachers all over the country. Funded by the Ford Foundation for
ten years, the project was initially a program of professional development for social studies teachers in grades 5-12.
The program was designed to address the increasing violence in our schools and by young
people in our society by providing an understanding of how conflicts are resolved both historically and in our daily lives. Intensive professional development institutes were held in California, Illinois,
Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. More than 25 leading historians helped to provide a rich historical background as the materials were developed and presented. More than 200
teachers from 15 states participated in the institutes and piloted the materials in their classrooms.
The culmination of this project is Conflict Resolution and United States History, a two-volume curriculum package for U.S. history teachers, for grades 5 through college.
