Students Solving Disputes

Found in: conflict resolution

When I have two quarreling students come to me, each telling their side of the story, the first thing I ask them to do is to sit together somewhere away from the others so they can have privacy. Next, I tell them to talk about what happened, and then come back to me when they both have the same story as to what really happened.

Many times, through this discussion, they conclude it was just a misunderstanding, and they will come back and say they have resolved the issue by themselves. If this is not the case, I know I will hear what is probably the 'truth' about what happened, and I am able to handle it from there.

This teaches students the importance of communication, and that many times they can resolve their own problems without my interference.
