This video delves into several types of conflicts your middle school students face at home, at school and in their neighborhoods. By using dramatic scenes, depicting common conflicts between parents, teachers and friends, and by hearing healthy solutions from real teens about how they deal with conflicts, viewers are challenged to reevaluate their own style of conflict resolution.
Along the way, your classroom will learn why bullying, sarcasm, using threats, shouting or hitting are not effective ways to resolve conflicts. They will learn that useful skills like putting yourself in others’ shoes, showing respect for others’ authority and opinions and taking time out to think about how you really feel, are all ways kids can understand conflict better and diffuse a situation before losing control. Extensive print material encourages your students to expand and reinforce the visual lesson.
