Conflict Resolution Skits

Today the students presented their conflict resolution skits. Their assignment was to choose a conflict from Holes that their character was a part of. Students then created skits to show how they could use "I statements" and restating in order to solve problems. Watch and see where they used these conflict resolution strategies!
