“Conflict Resolution” – Elementary Schools
(San Francisco Bay Area Only)
Offering tools to promote healthy relationships in the school environment.
‘We Can Work It Out’ is a conflict resolution assembly program for Elementary Schools. We use juggling, physical comedy, plate spinning, live music and audience participation to teach ground rules and the three steps to working out conflicts. We are trained in conflict resolution through the Community Boards Teacher Training Program. The Community Boards’ curriculum provides the bedrock for the show’s message. For more information on conflict resolution curriculum, go to Community Boards and the Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center. Doug Nolan and David Heartlife “Hearty” demonstrate a creative resolution to an escalating conflict in a ballet parody to the music of ‘Blue Danube’. Next, they explain the ground rules and the three steps to resolving conflicts through slapstick humor and juggling virtuosity. A star is born when a student volunteer assists in a skit that teaches ‘anger management’ skills. The entire school joins the act as we sing the ‘Big Bully Blues’. Using a simple three-step process a teacher volunteer mediates a conflict between Doug and Hearty while they juggle clubs. This mediation turns into a memorable finale’ as the volunteer stands in the middle of the juggling pattern as she delicately balances 5 spinning plates!
