Conflict resolution

(View Complete Item Description)

I have slightly changed from my preliminary lesson idea and changed it to focus on communication and conflict resolution. This lesson is on understanding the issue of conflict and conflict resolution through dialouge. I designed the lesson keeping Aisha in mind. She reported having conflict with their community regarding girls education due to lack of communication with the community members. I have added my lesson plan here, would appreciate feedback for the material. Thank you!
