Course curriculum

Circle by far is the most essential part of Restorative Practices. Circles can be conducted proactively to build relationships, or to respond to conflict and harm. The Power of Circle eCourse explores two types of proactive circles: The Quick Circle, and The Formal Circle. Participants will learn the key components of a circle, listen to other teachers talk about the transformation that circle has had on their own classrooms, and be able to strategically choose questions that maximize relationship building in schools.

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!”
