Conflict Activity Cards.
Levy, Margo; Otero, George
These action oriented activity cards dealing with conflict situations are for use with secondary students. The cards are intended to supplement any course dealing with conflict, including U.S. history, sociology, English, literature, economics, area studies, or political science. The cards are organized by color into certain broad categories which represent a progression of difficulty. The pink cards ask students to identify and define various conflicts and methods for resolving conflicts. For example, one pink card activity asks students to "cut out newspaper articles that involve some kind of conflict." They are then asked to "sort them in as many categories" as possible. Examples of categories--local, national, international or friendly, hostile--are provided. The yellow cards enable students to comprehend the elements making up conflict situations and to analyze these elements in order to extend their understanding of the basic concept. The blue cards ask students to apply their understanding in actual situations, where they will use the skills developed by the earlier activities to enable them to resolve conflicts. (Author/RM)
