TRIBE Teachers' Guide. Conflict Resolution Curriculum for Middle and High School.
Edelman, Dee; Liss, Kathyrn; Coggins, Cooper; Rios, Debbie
The conflict resolution curriculum presented in this teachers' guide is based on the belief that conflict is a natural part of life, although few people have the skills to deal with conflict creatively. This curriculum gives students the opportunity to practice skills related to dealing with conflict successfully in all areas of their lives. The curriculum is based on the TRIBE steps: (1) Tell the other person what's up with you; (2) Reflectively listen to the response; (3) Identify what's important to each of you; (4) Brainstorm the solutions that meet both of your needs; and (5) Evaluate the solutions, choosing one or more to implement. After a discussion of each of the TRIBE components, this guide discusses using role plays to clarify conflict resolution situations. The sixth grade curriculum, "Overview of Conflict Resolution," follows. The seventh grade curriculum is titled "Listening for Solutions," and the curriculum for grade eight is "Speaking So Others Can Hear." The ninth grade curriculum is "Personal Conflict Resolution." Each curriculum discusses applications of the TRIBE model and presents some role play examples. Six daily lessons are presented for each of the curricula. (SLD)
