September 7, 2021

Learn more strategies for helping students solve problems independently in the 2021 Edutopia article “7 Ways to Teach Kids to Manage Their Own Conflicts.”

The “Size of the Problem” activity and the Big vs. Little Problems worksheet are from The Zones of Regulation, by Leah M. Kuypers, available from Think Social Publishing, Inc. Adapted for The Zones of Regulation from the original work of Michelle Garcia Winner’s Think Social! (2005) and Kari Dunn Buron and Mitzi Curtis’s The Incredible 5-Point Scale (2003).
