"Out on a Limb has nothing to do with trees. Nope! It's an interactive guide that teaches children strategies for getting along with others. Many teachers begin their classroom year by teaching students the routines and expectations for classroom behavior. Since the site is 'designed to teach youth how to better manage conflicts and challenges they face on a daily basis, it would be a very useful site to work through with the students right in September. The activities on the Out on a Limb website are designed primarily for third graders, but can be used to entertain and educate youth from the second and fourth grades as well.' The site makes use of animated characters to teach three basic conflict resolution styles. The students learn that they can handle conflict in 'the loud style,' 'the soft style,' or the 'think and share' style. Examples of each style are given in a slide show type format. Students can read the short text on the screen or listen to the audio. The students also learn about communication skills, how to listen to others, and how individuals perceive things differently. Students could page through the site in partners, but it might be more effective to display the site on a large screen and work through the examples together. The examples will promote lots of discussion. The home page of the site engages students immediately by asking questions like, 'Have you ever gotten so mad you stomped away?' The Teacher's Guide has worksheets that will help students work through additional examples and apply their listening and communication skills. The worksheets can be used to assess how well students understand and can apply the concepts. If you're looking for an effective prompt to get students talking about feelings and how to handle them, this is it!""

"Go Out on a Limb and learn how to get along with others. Everyone gets mad once in a while, so it is important to understand how to handle anger effectively. Visit with Maria to find out how she dealt with a friend who called her stupid. Then talk with Cliff to learn what he did when he found out his brother wouldn't keep a secret. You'll discover how to deal with anger by thinking and sharing, and learn that perspective plus listening equals understanding."

"This site is designed to help students with conflict resolution issues. Activities are primarily designed to be used by third graders but could be used with most elementary students with appropriate teacher guidance. The site works best on a high-speed Internet connection and requires the latest version of Macromedia Shockwave player. Posing the questions of how to deal with unfriendly remarks from friends, sibling problems, and angry feelings, the site stresses the importance of listening to others and communicating your feelings. Given options of running away, fighting, or using the Think and Share choice, the site gives many positive outcomes from choosing the last option. Situations are developed to allow students to explore these choices and the many emotions involved. The http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/conflict/guide/index.html Teachers' Guide has lesson plans, worksheets in .pdf format and resource links to other conflict resolution organizations."
