R&R – Resolve or Report

Use R&R as a strategy when students argue or disagree.  “Resolve or Report” – give the students privacy and tell them to discuss together what happened.  The rule is they must take turns talking and LISTENING to the other.  At this time they can try to RESOLVE the problem themselves then tell you it is resolved OR they can tell you they each want to REPORT their story and have you assist them in resolving it.  Having the time to talk together and get each other’s perspective can often help students solve it themselves.
