Teacher started with Circles this April: Learnings and Challenges. May 24/22

Listen now on I-Tunes Circle Forum 

Every teacher needs to try restorative practices in class according to our guest this week, Brooke Monks, a grade 6 teacher with the York Region District School Board in Ontario. Brooke had Steve as someone who could model circles in the classroom and coach her. Brooke reflects this week on starting with restorative circles late in the school year this April. It’s doable and she has some great insights into how to get started.

Restorative practice suggestions:

  • Get a coach or someone to model circles in the classroom.
  • Try out restorative practices
  • Be explicit and teach the language and procedures of circles to students and adults.

See www.circleforum.ca for live online trainings in using circles.
