You will learn how to set high expectations while being supportive. You will practice how to provide direct feedback and how to ask questions that foster accountability. You will practice facilitating restorative circles.
Circles are essential for building classroom community, resolving social problems and responding when harm occurs. Circles create a positive learning environment.
You will learn by participating in circles with other attendees, taking turns to learn how to facilitate in a supportive group. By the end of the day, you will feel more confident and prepared to return to your setting and facilitate your first circle.
