Conflict Resolution in Contemporary Society.
Greensburg-Salem School District, PA.
These secondary materials help students understand the nature of human conflict and alternative methods of resolving such conflict in order to further human cooperation on global problems. Objectives of the materials include (1) identifying global problems, their multiple relationships, and basic elements within the categories of war and peace, environment, economic welfare, and social justice; (2) becoming aware of strategies for conflict management, such as concession and arbitration; (3) applying these strategies to specific situations; (4) developing evaluative criteria for assessing their effectiveness; (5) following commitment with action; and (6) clarifying one's own values while learning to respect value differences. The written and audiovisual program may be broken into supplementary units or stacked into a full year course. This flexibility allows the written materials included in this document to be used alone. Arranged sequentially, introductory packets provide concepts to consider in NOTSOB, a simulation which in turn acts as a catalyst for the packets concerned with the four problem categories. Each packet addresses a particular issue within the category; for instance, War Crimes: Individual Justice vs. Obedience to State is one of the packets from the category War and Peace. Background information, learning objectives, activities, readings, and references are included in each packet. (JH)
