The Restorative Principal: Leading in Education with Restorative Practices (Paperback)
This book is not available online.
In The Restorative Principal, teacher and principal Stephen Young explores the basic tenets of restorative practices and how he uses them to create positive school climates; build relationships between staff, students, parents and the community; address disciplinary issues; and provide leadership that is fair, supportive, equitable, and inclusive of all. Humourous, and at times controversial, true stories from his own career will engage fellow educators who are striving to develop an authoritative, rather than authoritarian, approach to working with others.
Mr. Young reviews the more common approaches of the past to classroom management, and he outlines the history of restorative practices in education, sharing practical examples and suggestions for readers-from think sheets to circle questions. Engaging and relevant, The Restorative Principal is an essential resource for all school leaders.
