Restorative practices (RP) are being embraced in more and more schools as a creative and effective approach to nurturing a positive school climate, improving students’ social and emotional wellbeing, reducing harmful behavior, and preventing and resolving conflict. At the core of restorative practices is building and sustaining meaningful relationships between and among educators and students. This eCourse is designed to help educators understand restorative practices by providing an overview of this differentiated approach to building community and preventing and responding to harm. It also provides concrete and practical strategies for implementing restorative practices in the classroom.

What Are Others Saying?

“I really liked the content of the course. I am new to teaching and struggled my first couple of months with classroom management and building relationships with my students, due to starting in the middle of the second semester. I am so excited to to do some planning over the summer and implement these practices in my classroom when we return to school!”
