Thinking Out Loud

Restorative Practices In Education

I’ll be at Mouth Desert Island High School in Maine tomorrow giving a workshop to the faculty (about 70 educators).  We’ll be focusing on communication styles and conflict resolution to support their restorative practices initiative.  This is a very forward thinking school, looking beyond the traditional model of discipline, as they focus on building community, individual responsibility, and accountability.  I have a long history of working with this organization and admire their high standards and humanistic approach to education.
