In five short sessions, this course will introduce children to a simple and clear approach to conflict resolution that emerges out of the work of Marshall Rosenberg. Classes are lively and discussion-based, with the whole course framed as a narrative. We use an animal each week to help us understand an aspect of conflict resolution and this is explained as a continuing story. The reference to animals and the use of a story format helps children track and internalize this well-established...
1. Students will learn the four stages of Nonviolent Communication as a process of conflict resolution. 2. Students will apply their learning to hypothetical scenarios. 3. Students will use animals as metaphors as a way to make the abstract process of conflict resolution more concrete. 4. Students will learn how to practice empathy in specific ways.
I have been a teacher for the last 22 years and a senior administrator for the last 11 years. As a Deputy Head of an international boarding school in India for six years, and after attending training in this method, I brought in Nonviolent Communication as a way to transform our approach to conflict, discipline, and behavior. This involved training teachers and then working with all ages of students, as well as designing Nonviolent Communication and Restorative Justice materials for classroom use. I believe passionately in this approach and have seen how children of every age can quickly grab hold of the process, because of its clarity. Over the last seven or eight years, I have steadily refined my own approach to teaching the process of Nonviolent Communication and look forward to sharing it with more children.
No homework will be assigned in this class, other than the challenge of applying their learning to their own lives!
A paper and pen or pencil
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Understanding will be continually assessed during the live sessions using carefully worded questions, to gauge what concepts need to be retaught or explained in a different way.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The topic of the class is conflict resolution. Parents should be reassured that the teacher will approach this only in terms of sharing a clear process that children can follow and relying on hypothetical (and non-threatening, nonviolent) scenarios to illustrate this process. The focus is on minor, daily conflicts common to children in this age range
The main source for this course is the book Nonviolent Communication, by Marshall Rosenberg.
