Managing and Resolving Conflicts Effectively in Schools and Classrooms (online course)

Managing and Resolving Conflicts Effectively in Schools and Classrooms is an online learning site designed to introduce key concepts for school conflict resolution. Over the course of a suggested five days of reading and activities, participants can:

Learn about in-school conflict management, review where and why such conflict occurs, and gain skills (for both adults and students) to manage, reduce, and work toward minimizing conflict.

* Explore the four basic program models in the United States:
  - Curriculum Infusion
  - Mediation Programs
  - Conflict Management as a Classroom Management Tool (e.g., Peaceable Classroom)
  - A Comprehensive Approach (e.g., Peaceable School Model that can help reduce and manage conflicts between and among adults and students in the school community)

* Review the research and evaluation tools available to help you monitor success and modify your plan to best meet your schools needs.

* Examine the key elements needed to develop a conflict management plan appropriate for your school and determine your next steps for creating plans for your school and district.
