Conflict Resolution: Grades 9-12

Conflicts happen. Learning to deal with them positively, manage anger, and communicate feelings is the focus of a lesson that gives high schoolers the tools they need for conflict resolution. After reading a series of related articles, groups first create a script and film their informational video for teens about healthy strategies for dealing with conflicts. Pupils then craft an essay that analyzes how a TV character dealt with a problem.
