Going DEEPER with Restorative Practices - Documentary Screening and Community Building Facilitation of the film CIRCLES
This session is for Peel Educators who are Restorative Practices Trained. You MUST have the certification to attend this session. A maximum of 100 educators can attend.
Focus of Session:
In practice, restorative justice addresses the core causes of conflict, fosters personal development, and has the potential to be a driving force in addressing pertinent issues like the disproportionate suspension and expulsion of Black and Brown students, and violence in schools. The philosophy and set of practices, aimed at building relationships through shared values, are much more than a one-time problem solver. As seen in the film, restorative justice is an additional tool for educators to support students who need their help the most.
This session will include a screening of the documentary and a facilitation with the filmmaker and the main character in the movie. Prepare to realize the importance of student voice and how to engage it restoratively for real change.
