Practice: Teleconferencing Explanation
you ever had fights with your friends? Has somebody in your class
every made you angry? Have you ever hurt a friend's feelings?
If you are a participant in the pilot project of "Peaceful
Conflict Resolution," you will have a partner in Canada, Mexico,
or the USA. You will be teleconferencing about problems between
children. If you speak Spanish, or are studying Spanish, then you
will be teleconferencing between Mexican and American students.
If you speak French, or are studying French, then you will be teleconferencing
between Canadian and American students.
Whether or not you are a participant in the pilot project, this
purpose of this site is to prepare you to interview students from
another country about conflicts between children. You will be asking
questions about the behavior of the children involved, the problem

will give you practice in learning both the questions and possible
answers. You can find the same information is in English,
French, and Spanish.
