Relationships are at the heart of learning and success in school and life beyond. Many of our students come to us without the skills to build and maintain positive relationships. Restorative practices help to “prepare teachers at all levels to ensure that their classrooms are welcoming, enriching, and constructive environments built on collective respect and focused on student achievement” (Better than Carrots or Sticks). This course will motivate and inspire you to get started with Restorative Practices in your own classroom today! Grade Levels K - 12
