Conflict Management

A lesson about the San Francisco Community Boards, and conflict management. Students learn vocabulary, watch a video and find dialog or writing prompts.

These materials include teaching notes and 5 mingle/warm-up activities, 5 sets of discussion questions for dictation, and suggestions for learning log ideas. You could use these materials on-line or download and use in a traditional class environment.

The CCSF Tech Committee

This committee began working in the Fall 2000 semester to create a unified Department tech committee. As of Fall 2006, I am Chair for this committee. We meet online and face to face and welcome your ideas at anytime. We post minutes on the ESL Teachers' Website at CCSF. We will continue to share ideas, goals, and successes for:

1) using the Internet wisely, for student learning and faculty support,
2) evaulating computer software, hardware and
3) developing classroom materials to support teachers new to computer technology.
