Basic Restorative Practices and Utilizing Circles
January 29, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm| Free
New thinking, new practice, new result… This workshop is a practical guide for educators interested in implementing restorative practices, an approach that proactively builds positive school communities while dramatically reducing discipline referrals, suspensions and expulsions. We will discuss the restorative practices continuum, implementation guidelines, and how and why the processes work. The focus will be on effective language, effective questions, small impromptu conferences, and using circles effectively. This will be a highly engaging workshop as we work together in a circle to show how restorative practices promote strong interpersonal relationships and community building and provide students with meaningful opportunities to be accountable for their actions and responsible for helping to make their school a safe and nurturing place.
