Work It Out! [electronic resource]: Strategies for Resolving Conflict

Last year's Spring Fling at Jefferson High School was a total disaster-and this year's student committee doesn't want it to happen again! But can the group put aside the past and work together constructively to create a successful dance? This video uses scenario analysis to model four key conflict resolution strategies: taking the person out of the problem; focusing on issues, not egos; being objective; and creating win-win solutions. Show your students that differences are a part of who we are-and that while we may not get along with each other all the time, we do have to find positive ways to work out our disagreements.

In this TEDTalk, Coleman delivers a call-to-arms for radical higher education reform. Bucking the trend to push students toward increasingly narrow areas of study, she proposes a truly cross-disciplinary education - one that combines all areas of study to address the great problems of our day.

TEDTalks [electronic resource]: Dan Meyer, Math Class Needs a Makeover

Educator Dan Meyer explores the way math is taught - although he's not sure it even is. In this TEDxNYED talk, Meyer asserts that today's math curriculum leads students to expect and become habituated to paint-by-numbers class work, robbing them of a skill more important than solving problems - formulating them. Meyer demonstrates classroom-tested exercises that prompt students to stop, think, and take a proactive approach to math.
