Modeling the C.R.O.S.S.ROADS Process Consistently with Groups and Individuals
- INDIVIDUAL LEARNER -
- CLASS GOAL SETTING -
- Class Example of Classroom Management Problem-solving using Goal Setting - The whole class is involved in solving the problem of lining up quietly. One class who used this process came up with saying a chant, creed, etc. together as they lined up. The critical component is the class was involved in making the choice and the plan to achieve the goal. If the class became lax, the teacher simply asked if they wanted to revise the plan or just needed more practice. (Step 5 in the process)
- Class Example 2: The goal is to be in seats when the class signal sounds.
- PROBLEM-SOLVING EXAMPLES
- C.R.O.S.S.ROADS Problem-solving Example 1 - This example is about a learner who does not understand the math homework and disrupts the class.
- C.R.O.S.S.ROADS Problem-solving Example 2 - This example is about a learner who is not turning in their homework.
- C.R.O.S.S.ROADS Problem-solving Example 3 - This example shows a learner who is regularly late to school because of staying up late gaming and late to class because of stopping to visit with friends.
- CONFLICT RESOLUTION EXAMPLES
- School Dialogue Scripts using the C.R.O.S.S.ROADS process - two scripts of actual situations that model the verbal use of the five steps. Once learned the process is most often a simple quick conversation as shown in the examples. The learners know they are going to work through the situation and come up with solutions. The adult becomes a facilitator and guides those involved.
- C.R.O.S.S.ROADS Conflict Resolution Example with Simplified Worksheet - This example is from an actual CROSSROADS worksheet filled out with no assistance by a sixth-grade student who was being sent to the office regularly. A critical result of the learner/teacher conference was the personal dialogue that began while going over the worksheet together.
