    Using The Lowdown

    This gives more information about conflict.

    Students can use 'The Lowdown' anytime they want to find out more about about issues raised in the activities. They can browse around or print off sections they find interesting.

    Teachers can also use The Lowdown to write their own learning tasks.

    For 'Conflict' there is information about causes and effects of personal and social conflicts.

    Encourage students to use 'The Lowdown' for research work or to broaden their learning for each online activity.

    Suggested research questions for students using The Lowdown

    1. Is bullying a form of conflict?
    2. What does 'mediation' mean?
    3. What does NATO stand for?
    4. What agreement was made at the end of the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina?
    5. What does CRISP stand for? Do you think this an effective way of dealing with conflicts?
