Integrating restorative practices into the curriculum can actually save time with stories from the recent experiences of Brooke Monks, a grade 6 teacher with the York Region District School Board in Ontario. She just started with circles in April of this school year and already she’s noticed that students were able to present projects in classroom circles. Prior to this, there was a lot of anxiety about standing up in front of class.
Restorative practice suggestions:
- Get a restorative coach or someone who can model circles with you in class.
- Get the restorative questions and resources from www.restorative.ca T
- ake the next step and try circles in your classroom.
See www.circleforum.ca for live online trainings in using circles.
