Peace Talks: Classroom Activities To Enhance Communication and Conflict Resolution Skills.
Schroeder, Judy; Blanton, Eileen
These lesson plans describe some of the basic conflict resolution lessons developed and used over the past years. The collection focuses on seven communication skills, sequenced from skills and activities that generally require the least amount of trust to those that require more. The skills identified include: (1) attention; (2) observation; (3) feelings of identification; (4) self-disclosure; (5) active listening; (6) open questions; and (7) assertion. Students progress through a series of activities to develop these skills and then work through conflict resolution simulations for win-win problem solving. Activities can be adapted to meet the needs of individual classrooms and can be used in an interdisciplinary fashion. Contains a 15-item conflict resolution bibliography. (EH)
