Our school has begun a restorative justice center. Phase one of the model will include having students watch video clips and respond to prompts about the videos. We currently have five Chromebooks, so having an extra one will allow more students to participate at once.
Phase two of the program may have students doing research on specific topics.
As part of the instructional piece of restorative justice, students may be asked to research specific topics and also create pamphlets, papers and write letters as part of the reflective portion of the restorative justice program. Having an extra Chromebook would be essential to phase two.
Our school has created a restorative justice program as part of our PBIS program. Rather than having punitive consequences, students will be asked to reflect on their actions and the harm it has caused themselves and others. After reflection, all stakeholders will take part in the restorative process to determine how the relationship can be restored.
Much of the beginning parts of the restorative justice program, instruction and reflection, will use technology.
Students will be using Chromebooks to research topics, such as employment expectations, effects of bullying, fire safety, etc. Students will also be creating letters of apology, develop lessons to teach younger students, write a list of behavior expectations for students when substitutes are on campus, etc.
Having additional Chromebooks will allow more students to access the restorative justice lessons at once.
