Good afternoon SUNS!
We are continuing to look at Bullying Prevention and Awareness. How can we do this? We can focus on our theme today: Awaken our ability to engage in conflict resolution!
Conflict resolution skills are best modelled and practiced in a safe and supportive environment. Students benefit from learning how to solve conflicts appropriately, using words. Today, students brainstormed and identified some strategies they could use to find a solution to a conflict or disagreement.
Some of these strategies are:
- Identify the issue – What do we disagree about?
- Listen actively to each other’s side.
- Clarify using “I” messages and a calm tone.
- Swap sides – think about the disagreement from both sides.
- Use eye contact.
I know you will continue to use these strategies. You can also practice these skills at home SUNS!
