Photo of the Day: “I don’t like violence, do you?”

This dynamic poster has “I don’t like violence, do you?” written at its top followed by over 100 hands and names. It was created by our Summer 2010 Core Program participants in Health class. This summer, Health teacher Ahmad focused on conflict resolution skills in his classroom. The children spoke of conflicts they have faced at home or at school, how these the conflicts made them feel and how they resolved them. Following several weeks of discussion, each child traced and colored their hand on this poster and pledged not to use their hands in violent or aggressive ways. This poster is a testament to their commitment and strength. Bravo!
