In this activity, students explore and prepare for the lessons of the Operation Respect's Don't Laugh at Me cornerstone curriculum theme of Conflict Resolution through the song “Down by the Riverside.”  The broad theme of the song is to cast off aggression in the form of societal or group aggression or, in a larger sense, war among nations.   We have selected it as the theme song for our third cornerstone curriculum theme "Resolving Conflict Creatively" because "laying down our sword and shield" is the beginning of using new skills to reduce conflict and to peacefully resolve problems.
