Conflict Resolution Model. Final Report.
Center for Literacy, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
The Conflict Resolution Model project was designed to develop and field test an instructional model and materials for use in providing instruction in conflict resolution theory and techniques to participants in adult basic and literacy education (ABLE) and English-as-a-second-language (ESL) programs. The instructional materials were written in a workshop format and were structured to build on learners' existing knowledge and strengths in conflict resolution while simultaneously presenting alternative conflict resolution techniques. A project manual and a learner's handbook manual were written, field tested on 111 learners in one 1 ESL class and 4 ABLE classes, and revised between field tests. Written evaluations confirmed that the students found the workshops interesting, relevant, and useful. (Accompanying this project report are a learner's handbook and instructor's manual. Included in the learner's handbook are reading materials on arguing, conflict resolution, and group conflict resolution. The instructor's manual includes the following: introduction; instructor's guide consisting of notes and an outline and description of the instructional model; learner's handbook; and overview, outline, activities, and handouts for the three workshops.)
