Dr. K's Tip of the Week

Besides teaching and modeling strategies that encourage self-reflection and awareness, another way to help students develop positive social interaction skills is to teach them problem solving and conflict resolution skills. Help children understand by giving them step-by-step directions in a problem solving situation. Help children work through a problem solving process. Teach children how to identify the problem, brainstorm possible solutions, and then choose the solution s/he would use.
