A. Conflict Resolution
In a situation where a student acts abnormally during class time, the teacher should not
react in a rush. Accusing the student of misbehavior and punishing him or her before finding out
what the cause of such is would be a wrong move. The teacher should ensure that the rest of the
students stay calm. The student who is behaving abnormally should be given the opportunity to
express him/ herself to the teacher alone. In this way, the student will be free to open up as
compared to being interrogated in front of the entire class.
The following process would be most appropriate in solving such a conflict. First, the
teacher should focus on finding out the cause of that unexpected behavior. Gathering more
information about the cause makes it easier to resolve the conflict. Such information should
include how the incident began and why does the student feel upset. The student should be set
free to explain his/her side of the story to gather first-hand information (Minton, 2015).
The second step involves looking beyond the incident. This is because the cause of the
student's behavior could be a minor problem which occurred a while ago. The student could have
been angered by a fellow student's behavior or that of the teacher. Outside the classroom will
give the student better space to express him/herself to the teacher so that the real problem is
discovered. If the student has something against the teacher, then a mediator should be brought
in for fairness to be achieved. The mediator should look at solutions that are acceptable to both
parties. For the conflict to be resolved there has to be an agreement between the student and the
other part...
