PLO Negotiations Affairs Department Negotiations Primer
The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Negotiation Affairs Department has produced a magazine-style primer exploring some of the history of Palestinian - Israeli negotiations and providing an overview of the issues that concern them in Permanent Status negotiations. While I’ve just discovered it, I believe the 50-page document, available as a pdf, was produced in 2008. The document is nicely laid out with photos and maps and graphs to help illustrate the points made.

Thirteen lessons are included helping young people to explore issues of peace, non-violence, conflict resolution and intercultural cooperation, using Peace Day as a focus.

Learning Module: Conflict Resolution for Special Education
This audio and video-enhanced learning module is aimed at teachers working with students with disabilities, and is particularly appropriate for special education teachers. It provides an overview of some of the kinds of conflicts that come up between parents of children with disabilities and the schools that serve them and provides ideas on how to enhance the collaboration between these two groups. Featured are the stories of two families who have a child with disabilities who talk about their experiences interacting with schools. The module isn’t really about mastering specific mediation or conflict resolution techniques, but rather about creating an environment of partnership. It was developed by Tracy Gershwin Mueller and Stephanie L. Moore from the University of Norther Colorado.
