The Steps for Conflict Resolution in “Todo Tranquilo”

Calmadores are learning that S.O.S in Todo tranquilo refer to the steps a person can use when trying to resolve a conflict.  Here is a brief explanation of these steps:

SStory - Each person tells his/her side of the story using  “I” messages to say how each feels.

O – Options - Both people suggest possible solution options, bringing forth as many ideas as possible.

S – Solutions - Both agree on a solution from the ideas that were suggested. IMPORTANT: make sure the option agreed to is safe, fair and will work for both people.

A Student-Led Conflict Resolution Program at Discovery School    

TODO TRANQUILO is a conflict resolution program for Discovery School Students. Conflict Resolution is a way to resolve differences effectively. During school, our students will be expected this effective technique both in the classroom and on the playground.

The reason why this program is so important is because our students will have the freedom to resolve their differences/conflicts on their own.

For this program, children from grades 3-5 have been invited to volunteer as “Calmadores” – students who are willing, responsible, mature and motivated to assist peers in solving conflicts successfully.
These volunteers will be training during lunch time for the next two weeks, learning about the process of S.O.S. and how to use it to resolve differences and/or disagreements.

More information regarding this program will be shared in following posts.
