As we prepare for our second live session, there are more content areas for you to explore.
As with Session 1, think of this as a flipped-classroom model where you will spend about 2 hours learning new information before we meet to process that information during our live session together.
Please watch the videos below, read the excerpts provided from Restorative Justice Conferencing, and use the questions to guide your learning. These questions are included simply to help you know where to focus your attention. Answers will not be collected.
Watch Conference Preparation (6:39), and refer to this excerpt from Restorative Justice Conferencing, as well as to the following handouts: What to Cover in the Initial Meeting and Conference Preparation Guide.
As you are watching and reading, consider the following questions:
- Conferencing is a voluntary process. What is the best way to present this process to participants (those harmed, those who harmed, and supporters) in preparation for a restorative conference?
- How is the facilitator role different during the preparation phase than when facilitating the actual conference?
- How does a focus on the needs of direct stakeholders change or challenge institutional discipline practices?
Watch Implementation Considerations (7:50). As you are watching, consider the following questions:
- How can you use Fair Process when implementing restorative practices in your setting?
- What are your immediate action steps?
- What are you challenged by in your learning?
- Who do you need to begin conversations with about your experiences?
