Restorative Practices Learning Series Intensive
This 3-session learning series intensive is designed to support K – 12th grade teachers and school support staff in creating a positive learning environment by developing healthy and nurturing relationships with their students. Participants will analyze videos, articles and their own and each other’s teaching to determine why and how to integrate specific restorative practices such as reflective bell ringers, check ins/check outs, and mediation, into their practice. During this learning series, attendees will engage in the practices of restoration: classroom community building; talking circles; restorative conversations; peer conferences; and conflict, healing and re-entry circles. This learning series will support teachers and school support staff in cultivating their classroom cultures and honing classroom management skills. This professional development offering is aligned to the CPS Framework for Teaching Components 2a, 2b, 2d, and 4d.
“I believe that my students’ learning and well-being will be positively impacted by the community building that will occur through peace circles.”
