Pedagogical Research, Vol.8 No.1 May 2011. -

The article focuses on the concept of confl ict as a core for several educational strategies in the framework of the so-called confl ict positive school. The strategies are analyzed from the point of increased achievement and productivity, creative problem solving, growth in cognitive and moral reasoning, increased perspective-taking ability, although the main emphasis is laid on developing students’ pluralistic democratic values, inter-culturality and citizenship. Two branches of educational strategies working on the basis of confl ict are presented: non-fictional and fictional, with several examples academic controversies, drama strategies. Th e factors of creating a learning environment respecting diversity are discussed with the consideration of the process of implementing the strategy into common practice in schools.
