Title: A Conflict Resolution Protocol for Elementary Classrooms
URL: https://www.responsiveclassroom.org/a-conflict-resolution-protocol-for-elementary-classrooms/
Description:

A basic belief underlying The Responsive Classroom approach to teaching is that how children learn to treat one another is as important as what they learn in reading, writing, and arithmetic. We believe that social skills such as cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control are essential to children’s academic and social success and we emphasize the teaching of these skills, along with academics, throughout the school day.

This resource provides teachers with classroom strategies to build community, improve communication, and enhance classroom discussion. This resource also has a listing of professional books related to these topics.

Title: Conflict Resolution Activities: Effective Ideas for Classrooms
URL: https://proudtobeprimary.com/conflict-resolution-activities/
Description:

Conflict resolution is an important skill that students need to learn – beneficial to them within the classroom as well as in everyday life. Not only will kids use conflict resolution in the classroom, they will also continue to use these skills as they grow. The conflict resolution skills they learn in elementary school will help them solve problems as adults. So how do we teach conflict resolution in the classroom?

There are many steps to teaching conflict resolution. To truly teach conflict resolution, you’ll need to teach your students how to analyze the conflict. They’ll need to be able to identify the problem and try to understand what’s causing it.
