Video for conflict styles 3

Description of episode

Simpsons: Season 6, episode 8

I like to show three videos to demonstrate different conflict styles. This clip is a nice example of the compromising style (Lisa with Bart) and the withdrawing style (Lisa and Bart with their father).

Toward the end of this episode, there is the final hockey game between Lisa’s team and Bart’s team. Homer has been playing the kids against each other the whole season and the kids enter the finals with a fierce rivalry. However when it comes time to decide the final score, the kids make an unexpected move that leaves Marge proud and Homer in tears.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
