Students may have experienced different forms of trauma in their lives, which affect how they learn and relate to school. Understanding the role that trauma plays in our schools and how it affects our students is crucial to creating and teaching meaningful, engaging lessons. Utilizing restorative justice practices and trauma-responsive teaching practices promotes empathy and focuses on finding respectful ways to build community, restore relationships, and repair harm. Maisha T. Winn writes in Justice on Both Sides: Transforming Education through Restorative Justice, “Restorative justice circles have the potential to be ‘change labs’ where people are transformed through a participatory process that provides opportunities for them to learn more about the lives of others they have previously disregarded or even held in contempt.”

After four years of practical application, Peabody-Burns Middle/High School has developed a data-driven model to successfully implement restorative justice practices and trauma-responsive teaching. This presentation will address how to effectively use restorative justice practices throughout the school day, how to facilitate restorative circles with your students, and examine the effectiveness of a restorative justice discipline model. As well as the benefits of implementing trauma-responsive teaching strategies, and how to design a school day that is reflective of restorative values: healing, community, and accountability. Attendees will leave with resources they can begin to use in their classrooms and schools the next day.
