This training is designed for classroom teachers, aides, and administrative staff who are interested in implementing specific classroom strategies using restorative principles and practices. Following an introductory training in the basic principles, values, and processes of restorative practices and interventions in school settings, we will discuss and practice ways that participants can implement restorative values and practices, such as connection circles, using affective statements, restorative conversations, restorative agreement meetings, and curriculum integration strategies, in their specific classrooms. Participants will come away with a specific plan of action for their classroom and their school.
We will use a variety of teaching tools to keep you engaged, including short presentations, real-life stories, small group work, dyads, videos
, and large group discussions. Our goal is to keep the pace of the day moving and full of variety. This training is ideal for teachers who want to learn how to use restorative practices and restorative discipline with their students. Each participant will come away with a small packet of materials.
