Rubric for Resolving Conflicts


Published on

This was made with Jon Schatzky and Barney Trezona.

As a task in our MYP Areas of Interaction workshop, we worked together to unpack on AOI for students. We chose Approaches to Learning, and then focused on 'Social'. Using the document "Making the PYP Happen' and its trans-disciplinary skills, we then decided to create a rubric for the skill of 'Conflict Resolution'.

  2. 2. Rubric for dealing with and teaching conflict resolutionSeeing the MYP ATL’s move to five (social,communication, self-management, research, thinking), wesaw the connection with the PYP’s trans-disciplinaryskills. These are in the Making the PYP Happen document(get it from the OCC). This excerpt shows just how thePYP have unpacked the ‘Social’ element (Making the PYPHappen, page 22).It will be interesting to see how this is translated oradapted over to the move to MYP (and the Approaches toTeaching and Learning in DP).Next steps with this document: Align the language throughout the descriptors, to make it more cohesive Test it in a class or with students Take these descriptors and transform them into a more visual/ student-friendly format for posters/ handbooks Develop the rubric further as a webpage, hyperlinking key words and phrases (such as reflective listening), to point to resources which can be used by teachers, students and parents.Barney Trezona, Jon Schatzky, Stephen Taylor at an MYP AOI workshop, Singapore, April 2012
