"Conflict Resolution Drama"

Activity

Summary

Participants will create and perform skits that demonstrate positive approaches to conflict resolution utilizing active listening and other pro-social behaviors.

Instructional Strategies

1. Have participants form small groups of two to four. 2. Hand out a sample age-typical conflict. 3. Tell them they must create two skits. 4. One skit will demonstrate how not to solve a conflict through the incorporation of Òpoison wordsÓ (that utilize anger and blame) 5. The other skit will demonstrate how to best solve a conflict through the use of conflict resolution tools such as: ÒIÓ Statements, Active Listening, and Reframing. 6. These conflicts can be dramatized versions of history in a social studies class or be used with math and economics to understand labor history, allocation of resources, or class conflicts
