11. Restorative Justice

Program: Support Services: General Professional Development

Dates: 10/22/2018

Starting Soon
Restorative Justice Practices are a set of informal and formal strategies intended to build relationships and a sense of community to prevent conflict and wrongdoing, and respond to wrongdoings, with the intention to repair any harm that was a result of the wrongdoing. Preventative strategies include community or relationship building circles, and the use of restorative language. Some responsive strategies include the use of Restorative Questions within a circle or conferencing format, again with the intention of repairing the wrong that happened as a result of the behavior. The Restorative Questions, while varied in exact language, ask the student to consider: what happened? who did it impact? how do you make it right? Research has shown that effectively managing student behavior is a pre-requisite for all of the other learning that needs to happen in a classroom. Unfortunately, many of our school discipline policies are not working. The Restorative Justice institute will help educators learn how to transform their discipline policies and create inclusive learning environments that increase achievement for all students. Participants at the event will leave with:

• The ability to answer the question- What is restorative practice and restorative justice?

• The desire and tools necessary to implement restorative justice practices in their school and districts.

• Concrete tools and a mechanism to deal with questions about restorative justice that may arise in their buildings.

• An understanding of the low-level and high-level harm caused by poor discipline policies and what they can do to repair the harm. This workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions of Dr. Dominique Smith and each other with a focus on transforming their own personal beliefs and learning how to manage classroom behavior more effectively by determining why students are behaving in a certain way.

November's book: Ugly by Robert Hoge

Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature"!

Participants are asked to:

-attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

-come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

-be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

*Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

*What feelings did this book evoke for you?

*What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

*Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

*What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2018-19 school year.

Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.
