For Teachers

Transform your classroom into a haven for all students regardless of the academic content you teach. Through the power of restoration and collaboration, prepare all students to self-advocate, talk through social challenges, and increase their capacity to find thrive in times of stress, frustration, and perceived social injustice.

2018 - 2019
One Day Workshops

K-12 teachers from across the country are talking about the power of restorative justice/approach and some are beginning to use restorative circles to support students.

While restorative circles are indeed a powerful restorative tool, circles alone are insufficient to address all the challenges facing teachers as they attempt to shift from traditional behavior management strategies to more proactive and productive transformational approaches. Join school teachers from across the country in a more in-depth and comprehensive exposure to the many other tools and techniques that round out a restorative toolkit. These sessions will be conducted in a school-based setting where participants will view a restorative approach in action and build their capacity to help students work through conflict and or other distracting behaviors.

On-Site Customized and Embedded Professional Development

Experienced and novice teachers alike want to advance in the profession and to be the best teachers they can be. They want to meet the academic needs of their students as well as develop social skills that will allow them to persevere through even the most challenging times. Teachers also want professional development is on-going, imbedded, and tailored to meet their specific needs.

RestorativeUS will work with teachers to train on specific restorative techniques and will give them an opportunity to learn and practice within a school setting. RestorativeUS will partner with individual teachers and or cohorts of likeminded colleagues to provide virtual and/or on-site professional development and support. This collaboration will result in a short-term or long-term partnership with the goal of establishing a rich set of restorative approach routines, practices, and results. RestorativeUS ensures that, when implemented with integrity and commitment, students in restorative schools miss fewer hours of instruction and are better able to self-advocate and problem-solve regardless of context or challenge.

Contact RestorativeUS to begin the dialogue of transformation.

The Restorative Playbook

The Restorative Playbook is a guide developed to support schools that implement restorative circles but lack additional strategies.

The Restorative Playbook includes 15 tools to address two central challenges of launching or improving a restorative approach: mindset and implementation. Each activity addresses at least one of these challenges and some activities address both. Tools in The Restorative Playbook can help adults shift their thinking and beliefs and equip implementers with strategies to use in the classroom, school, and throughout a district.
