Full course description

This 3-session Professional Development activity supports K -12 teachers and school support staff in creating a positive learning environment by developing healthy and nurturing relationships with their students and, as a result, lessen the reliance on detentions, suspensions, and expulsions in their schools. Attendees will examine restorative practices and their historical context. 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 the 5-session Hybrid 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 aligns CPS teaching domains 2a, 2c, 3b, 3c, and 4d.
