Work It Out! Strategies for Resolving Conflict

Last year’s Spring Fling at Jefferson High School was a total disaster—and this year’s student committee doesn’t want it to happen again! But can the group put aside the past and work together constructively to create a successful dance? This video uses scenario analysis to model four key conflict resolution strategies: taking the person out of the problem; focusing on issues, not egos; being objective; and creating win-win solutions. Show your students that differences are a part of who we are—and that while we may not get along with each other all the time, we do have to find positive ways to work out our disagreements. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. Correlates to National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences Education and Project 2061. A Cambridge Educational Production.
