Instructional Ideas
  • Some learners may need additional scaffolding to get the connection of the engagement hook to the lesson itself
  • Post the steps in the STAR conflict resolution process (Stop, Think, Act, Review) and review
Classroom Considerations
  • The series presumes class members took part in the sixth grade lesson series from the same source
  • Second resource in a three-lesson series
  • Requires access to video equipment
  • Materials include 3X5 cards in three colors, scrap paper, and markers
  • The activity enables students to demonstrate positive ways of handling conflicts between peers, parents, and teachers
  • The plan is richly detailed
  • Groups are asked to assess how well they worked together on the project and used their problem solving skills to setting any conflicts that arose
  • Although the suggested length is two days to adequately scrip and perform, the scenarios will likely take four to five days
