Schools and teachers everywhere are abandoning harsh, punitive controls on student behaviour; such as consequence-based systems and frequent school suspensions; for restorative practices that can lead to more productive classrooms that result in improved student learning. In this book, Authors Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey share their proven approach to implementing restorative practices in schools and classroom. From welcoming students in the morning to resolving the most serious behaviour problems, the authors' framework includes
- Steps to building trusting and positive relationships with students.
- How to establish rules, procedures, and expectations that result in a classroom compact between teaches and students.
- Ways to prevent and manage conflict by keeping, making, and building peace.
- Ideas for reflecting a restorative approach in school management and parent and community outreach.
