Conflict Resolution Unit.
This 7-day unit, intended for use with secondary students, contains a statement of rationale and objectives, lesson plans, class assignments, teacher and student bibliographies, and suggestions for instructional materials on conflict resolution between individuals, groups, and nations. Among the six objectives listed for the unit are: 1) explain why the actions of both individuals and nations differ due to differences in their cultural experiences, values, perceptions, goals, and expectations; 2) identify the reasons that conflicts occur in the present international system; and, 3) list and compare the kinds of alternative techniques available in the present international system to deal with conflict. A variety of classroom experiences are utilized to help the students achieve these objectives, including presentation and discussion of the film, Little Island; use of the Cuban Missile Crisis as a case study; role playing; and classroom games to illustrate bargaining techniques. A reading on conflict resolution and accompanying exercises are also provided. (JLB)
