Instructional Ideas

  • Use in a counseling office or center when helping teens deal with conflicts with peers
  • A good resource for a peer counseling group to help their friends handle conflicts
  • Have learners in a language arts class fill out the form from the perspective of a character dealing with conflict in his or her life
Classroom Considerations

  • You may need to reformat or have participants note their responses on another piece of paper, as the form doesn't provide a lot of space for answers
  • Worksheet may be best used as a guide to a conversation, rather than a form to fill out
Pros

  • Prompts participants to reflect on their behavior and what they can do to improve a situation
  • Questions are thought provoking and helpful
Cons

  • Presumes a safe atmosphere for the discussion of personal issues
