Classroom Management and Conflict Resolution

  1. 1. Welcome To The Cookie Test!!!  An Activity for Classroom Management and Conflict Resolution   Presented by Diane Eisenberg and Yechezkel Bund                          ETAI Conference Summer 2010    Introduction: "The Cookie Test," is a fun and innovative activity for students based on the famous "Marshmallow Test" conducted by researchers at Stanford University. In the activity, students use HOTS /Critical Thinking Skills to develop tools for improved self‐control and enhanced interpersonal skills. Goal: For students to understand and explore the concept of immediate gratification and their relationship to it. With this new awareness, students can gain a new perspective on how to improve school performance, manage conflicts and better succeed in life. The Cookie Test can be modified for any level class, age or cultural group. The Cookie Test works best as a class project done over several lessons. These five parts are crucial: Part A: Students begin to do activities and worksheets that (unknowingly) revolve around the concept of immediate gratification and their relationship to it. Part B: The concepts of immediate and delayed gratification are revealed to the students. Students learn about the original Marshmallow Test. Part C: Students analyze and focus on how the desire for immediate gratification can prohibit maximum academic performance, both in and outside the classroom. Part D: Students begin to evaluate immediate gratification as the root of many conflicts. Part E: Concluding worksheet and/or activity to sum up the project and for the teacher to see if the goal has been reached.
