Wise Skills

CCCS utilizes the Wise Skills program to teach character education.  Each month a character theme, along with corresponding characteristics, is explicitly taught to students.  At the end of the month, teacher select a student from each class that has demonstrated excellence in the character theme of the month to receive an award during our weekly flag salute ceremony.

April: Conflict Resolution

Students need to learn how to resolve their own conflicts and disagreements nonviolently.  Effective conflict resolution involves applying a variety of character skills to listen, communicate, and compromise to come up with peaceful solutions.  As students learn to resolve their conflicts peacefully, they feel better about themselves and gain confidence in their ability to discuss their differences and not rely on physical force.

The following are characteristics of Conflict Resolution:

Communication: Students will see the importance of effectively communicating their needs and feelings with others.

Managing Feelings:  Students will see the importance of managing feelings, especially anger.

Forgiveness: Students will understand the benefits of giving and receiving forgiveness.

Resolving Conflicts Wisely: Students will see the importance of solving disagreements peacefully and will gain skills for effective conflict resolution.
