Using Circles to Teach

A One to Two-Day Workshop

Level: Intermediate
Topic: Training workshops in Restorative Circles
Length: 1-2 days

For teachers who have attended a foundational training and have a comprehensive understanding of Restorative Practices and the use of authentic Circles, this workshop explores incorporating the Circle format into the actual teaching of subject content. This is not just about using Circles for check-ins and other community building activities, but to actually utilize the strengths of the Circle process in teaching academic content. Includes looking at student engagement, student voice, and the Four C’s of 21st Century Learning within the context of the Restorative Practice philosophy.

The two-day workshop allows for more extensive activities and practice. The one-day workshop is more of an overview.
