Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)
- Strategies: Analyze conflict resolution styles and explore successful methods of dealing with conflict
- Perspective-Taking: Develop empathy, social awareness, and mutual respect with others
- Effective Communication: Create non-threatening environments, develop language and tone to find solutions
- Accountability: Learn the importance of taking responsibility for role in conflict
The Conflict Resolution module includes five (5) theme-based social and emotional units that use story-telling, reading and writing comprehension, discussion groups, situation analysis and contemporary music and games to help students succeed.
Unit 1: Understanding the Brain and Managing Stress
Students learn how the brain functions during stress and threatening situations, and how to regulate and manage stress to achieve their goals.
Unit 2: Learning about Conflict Responses
Students learn self-awareness and empathy for their own stress-response and develop accountability for their actions.
Unit 3: Using Restorative Questions
Students learn restorative principles and develop inquiry skills to create non-threatening environments, repair harm and negotiate solutions.
Unit 4: Communicating for Trusting Relationships
Students learn empathic listening and communication skills to build trust in communities.
Unit 5: Resolving Conflict
Students learn problem-solving and collaboration techniques to resolve conflict, and develop personal and group values that sustain trusting relationships.
Here's how it works:
ON THE REEL
An animated short introduces the theme-based, real life issues that adolescents face and characters who students can identify with. Each story provides thought-provoking questions about values, problem-solving, and personal growth.
BREAK IT DOWN
Replay portions of the animation that the YLA Team Leader uses to facilitate group analysis and discussion. This activity teaches students to identify problems, assess risk, draw conclusions, and communicate effectively.
WRITE TO THE POINT
Participants can express their individual views in an electronic journal to reinforce the lessons learned in prior sessions. Students use their critical thinking skills while strengthening their language and reasoning skills.
WE GOT GAME
Take the lesson to a physical plane, allowing students to act on the topic and to integrate the lesson experientially through role playing, digital projects, and challenge and puzzle games. Students learn to trust and work collaboratively in groups.
A TV-style quiz game that measures retetion without feeling like a test. It allows for evaluation and assessment on participants.
Provides definitions of unfamiliar words that appear throughout the text in the interface. This enables the exploration and use of new language.
HOT LINKS LIBRARY
Encourages further study of the topic by providing links to relevant content on the internet. Participants integrate history, geography, economics, and language arts into the Life Skills modules.
