In a unit of study relevant to every human being, young people practice positive ways to avoid conflict and address problems. By learning the practical problem-solving tools of ‘Solutionaries,’ teens will be supported to manage real life situations. Foundational topics include making problems smaller rather than bigger, digging to the root cause, and locus of control. Building on this foundation, learners practice communication skills like being assertive, using ‘I statements’, tuning into tone, close listening, and viewing multiple perspectives. The remainder of the unit focuses on responding to harm in restorative ways by being an interrupter of bullying behavior, apologizing, forgiving, and healing. The culminating group project invites young people to see conflict and adversity as opportunities for growth, to embrace self-reflection, and to strive for resolution when a problem is within their locus of control. Within the project, small groups choose a scenario that challenges them to use problem-solving and communication skills to find an effective resolution. Groups share strategies and insight with each other as they perform their solution for the group.
