Peace Maker Place
When your students get into arguments or fights, give them a chance to work things out on their own. This will help to place the responsibility on them, and they will get valuable experience with conflict management and resolution. In order to implement this in your classroom, dedicate a specific place in your room for peace-making. The students involved can take a little time to resolve their conflicts and decide upon any consequences. They should also fill out a simple form where they explain the problem, the resolution, the consequences and then sign to show that they all have come to an agreement. This will also save you time as most arguments can easily be resolved by your students without you becoming involved at all.
