Format: Paperback
Conflict is a part of life, but the effect it has on us is amplified when we are young. I still vividly remember the bullies on the playground of my elementary school and how I dealt with them. The conflicts that occur in the classroom are generally less intense, but are just as important. These problems compound the difficulties of the teacher, after all, in a class of n students, there are n!/(2!*(n-2)!) potential conflicts between two students. Short of being authoritarian, the only recourse a teacher has is to assign an activity that dampens the hostility.

This book is a collection of such activities, and they are based on Peter Senge's fifth discipline, a set of concepts that codifies general behavior into patterns. A pattern is a fundamental meta-structure that recurs in life and can be used to describe a wide range of different events with a similar origin. For example, the "turf war" pattern can be used to describe everything from two nations fighting a war over territory to two children fighting over who gets the next turn on the slide. Senge's fifth discipline first formally appeared in his book "The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization" that was published in 1994. The patterns that he described have been applied to the business world, where I first encountered them.

The five components of the discipline are systems thinking, personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, and team learning. In this book, the authors give a set of activities to build each of the components. Each lesson is classified according to:

*) The component that it enhances.

*) The appropriate grade levels.

*) Multiple intelligences used, categories such as intrapersonal, interpersonal, visual/spatial and verbal/linguistic.
