Resolve or Report is a strategy for students who are having quarrels or disagreements. The RESOLVE strategy gives students an option to privately resolve the issue with rules for turn taking and listening. The RESOLVE portion helps them to see each other’s perspective often making it easier to solve the disagreement themselves. The REPORT option allows students to request help resolving the issue by REPORTING their perspective of the story and having assistance from an adult.
I have some students who continually get into arguments or fights. Many times I don’t know who did what. I don’t like to give consequences without having enough information and they of course blame each other. Do you have any suggestions?
