Bucket Meetings - A Conflict Resolution Solution

Bucket Meetings are a good way to clear the air with a group.  I have been doing them with my Cabin of 10 year 9 boys at the boarding school I work at.  These boys get thrown in to this Cabin together and need to work out how to get along for the year, keeping the place clean and getting around the busy learning schedule we set them.  Inevitable tensions rise in the Cabin and these need to be resolved.  Bucket meetings are a chance to take ownership of any part they had in issues and talk it out.

Minecraft Community Session 3

This is the third one hour session of the community simulator.  Things are starting to settle down in a rythm a bit for each class.  They understanding the world and the basics of how it works.  The culture and societies that are evolving are different from dog eat dog and survival of the fittest societies to ones that are going through the challenging process of setting up rules and order.

Alpha Group

These guys are starting to get organised the majority of this group want to have progress and create.  There are still some that think it is fun to run around trolling people by killing them and taking their stuff however this number is diminishing as the law of the masses takes over.
