Join Morningside Center and Share My Lesson for a webinar on Restorative Practices. 

Experienced Morningside Center trainers will share guidelines and tips for facilitating successful circles based on years of work implementing research-based programs in hundreds of New York City public schools. Participants will learn techniques for using circles to build their students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) skills, create a more caring classroom community, and strengthen school efforts to implement restorative practices.

Our facilitators will:

  • Share guidelines for facilitating successful classroom circles, including prompts we have found most helpful when first beginning circles
  • Provide practical suggestions for how to build students’ SEL skills inside classroom circles, including suggested circle topics
  • Offer tips for using circles to build and maintain a strong sense of community in your classroom
  • Discuss how circles can support your school’s move to restorative discipline
  • Provide links to many more resources on becoming a skilled circle keeper

Register now for this restorative practices webinar.

Available for one-hour of PD credit. Available FREE on demand. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.
