Sam book series
The three books of the Sam book series were written in 2008 and designed to teach students about peace education and conflict resolution. PSI has since published new kids books, however the Sam books are still good resources for students! Download the books for free from the links below:
Sam and the Goodwill Sandwich – Sam learns the ‘Goodwill Sandwich’ method for giving feedback, addressing issues of controversy, offering criticism and re-direction, and de-escalating problems. The technique uses a combination of goodwill, good data and ends with more goodwill in order to engage the other person as an ally in the problem-solving process.
Sam Takes a Stand – Sam learns how to deal with put-downs, mean jokes, demeaning comments, teasing, and verbal abuse, without resorting to counter-attack or aggression.
Sam Speaks Up – Sam learns how to speak up for himself in a respectful manner when he feels he has been unfairly treated by an adult.
