Restore order to your classroom and establish a positive school culture with Talking Circles. This evidence-based intervention builds communities that foster social capital and creates a structure to repair the harm that impacts individuals within that community. Grounded in indigenous ways, Talking Circles have the opportunity to subvert the power structures within the punitive discipline model, and reestablish a communal approach that supports our students as 21st Century learners.
