Conflict Management in Sports and on the Street: Sports and the Law.
Degelman, Charles; Hayes, Bill
This lesson plan uses students' interest in sports to teach good citizenship. With its focus on rules, responsibility, conflict resolution, and teamwork, the unit emphasizes the development of critical thinking, decision-making, and citizenship skills in young people. This lesson plan is part of a series of fully prepared, interactive classroom lesson plans offered by the Sports and the Law program of the Constitutional Rights Foundation. Each lesson includes detailed teacher instructions, background information, and student handouts. This lesson helps students identify and resolve conflict on the sports field and in their daily lives. Students: (1) identify conflict in their lives; (2) evaluate sports scenarios to identify flash points where conflict escalates into arguments or violence; and (3) apply methods for conflict resolution to a hypothetical situation from everyday life.
