Conflicts in the classroom happen, and when they do, respectful relationships and orderly routines can quickly be set off track, as can be the perfect lesson plan. It can be tempting to dismiss disagreements and move on, settle them yourself as the adult, or even penalize students for a disruption, but it’s important to develop conflict resolution skills with students so they can work through sticky situations.
