Quiet students need to have talking space according to our guest this week, Brooke Monks, a grade 6 teacher with the York Region District School Board in Ontario. She speaks from the experiences of her students when they answered her question about how they felt when someone talks over them. It’s the second of 3 parts of our conversation with Brooke.

Restorative practice suggestions:

  • restorative practice helps with classroom management with techniques using talking pieces.
  • Start restorative circles at any time of the school year.
  • Start small steps with circles in September every Monday morning and every Friday afternoon for starters.
