Restorative Justice in the Classroom

October 8, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

When students are scared, uncomfortable, unseen, or not served by systems, they act out. Restorative justice practices quell the fear, bridge the comfort, make visible those who hid behind masks before the fear manifested in disruption. Too much of what educators do in schools is reactive to “behavior” issues, expecting we can put band-aids on bullet wounds and call it a day. Counter to traditional disciplinary methods in schools, restorative practices are proactive in setting up classrooms where students are seen and given opportunities to share their voices. In this workshop, educators will learn how to develop community circles and online restorative practices as they participate in virtual circles, spectrum, and community building activities.
