I have come across a great teaching tool from a state-wide peer mediation project that provides training manuals. The project is called [url=http://www.oscn.net/static/adr/pros.aspx]PROS – Peaceful Resolutions for Oklahoma Students[/url]. The project is being administered collaboratively by the The Law-Related Education Division of the Oklahoma Bar Association and the Early Settlement Programs administered by the Supreme Court of Oklahoma, Administrative Office of the Courts. The goal of the project is to train school representatives, including students, from around Oklahoma to develop a peer mediation program in the school they represent. The training manuals may also be utilized to provide training to staff. In addition to the staff manuals, included is a separate manual for Elementary students and a manual for Middle/High School students. The information provided is both instructional and informational and includes a vocabulary review, activities, games, work sheets, scripts for role plays and discussion and observer forms. Also included in the manual are mediation forms to help guide students on how to develop a peer mediation program.
The links to the pdf versions of the manuals are listed below:
