Reading Level: 9 - 12 years
A game of ball ends in a conflict between Jason and Mark. The reader can choose between
five different story lines to deal with the conflict: taking the ball away, walking away,
telling an adult, peer mediation, and suggesting a solution that is fair to both. Discussion
topics include name calling, teasing, fighting, choice/consequences, communication, mediation,
"I" messages, creative alternative solutions and the power of choice.
