Re-Thinking Discipline

Traditional discipline practices have been proven unsuccessful in changing behaviors, but teachers and administrators are left not knowing what or how to discipline in effective ways. This workshop will explore restorative practices that view discipline as teachable moments such as using Reflection, Restorative Circles, Reteaching, Restitution, Repairing Repairing Relationships, and Logical Consequences. Learn what these practices look like in practice, how to structure them, and how to implement them at the Tier I, II, and III levels so boundaries and responses to student behaviors are clear. There will be opportunities to collaborate, work through scenarios, and apply the content to your setting so you leave with strategies you can implement tomorrow.
