Young people need to learn and to use alternative dispute resolution skills at school as well as in their daily lives. Ways in which to instruct high school and middle school students in these skills are detailed in the leader's guide and accompanying video. In addition to demonstrating the mediation process, the video presents ideas and stimulates discussion on issues of diversity and how they are dealt with in U.S. society. It discusses why people put each other down and what the effect of "put downs" is on others. The leader's guide includes such topics as: "Ways to Use Diversity Materials in Your Program,""The Basic Mediation Process,""Looking at Yourself,""Differences in Communication Styles,""Mediation Approaches to Diversity Issues,""The Discovery" -- a story about cultural differences and conflict, and an annotated script of the video. Questions for discussion and suggestions for role plays are included. (EMK)
