Video: Solving a Class Problem

Watch students brainstorm problems in their classroom and come up with solutions as part of a 4Rs lesson.

We all deal with conflict on daily basis. Very often, conflict that takes place in the classroom ends up affecting everyone in the class community.

In this video, a teacher in our 4Rs Program (Reading, Writing, Respect & Resolution) uses an approach for solving classroom problems developed by William Kreidler, called ABCDE Problem Solving.   

Watch as the teacher guides her class through the basic steps of ABCDE:

  • Ask, What's the problem? 
  • Brainstorm solution. 
  • Choose one. 
  • Do it! 
  • Evaluate.
