Improving Conflict Resolution among Third and Fourth-Grade Students through Group Interaction.
Locke, Myra S.
A practicum project designed to alleviate behavior and discipline problems at a Florida elementary school through the use of a conflict resolution curriculum that emphasized group interaction is described. The third- and fourth-grade students were asked to work cooperatively on projects that guided them through a series of strategies that taught them how to develop respect for themselves and others. Observations were made each month during the school year to ascertain if children were responding to the intervention. Pre- and posttest observations and surveys found that the students learned to communicate effectively with one another and respect themselves and others while learning to accept the unique qualities inherent in all individuals. (Six appendixes provide copies of parent letters, attitude surveys, monthly and final observation report forms, posttest surveys, and references for classroom intervention techniques.) (MDM)
