Restorative Practices are catching on in schools across the nation, as the importance of building authentic relationships within the classroom has become an urgent priority for many educators.

Within this practice, the Classroom Circle is a dynamic structure educators can use to build relationships and strengthen school communities.  In this book, author John Whalen, a district Restorative Practices Coordinator and a lead trainer for National Educators for Restorative Practices, discusses why we circle, the different types of Classroom Circles, the components of Classroom Circles, and, most importantly, tips and strategies for facilitating circles inside of the classroom.  

Contributor Denise Holliday-Jones, also known as “Circle Mamma”, adds her insights and spirit between each chapter with a powerful diary entry.  

Readers will enjoy real stories of classroom circle experiences from real educators, as well as 20 sample circle scripts and various other circle-building tools.
