This product was made to compliment and to be used with the ReThink Posters in my store. It, too, shows the meaning behind my brand- ReThinking the Middle. I believe students need to be given second chances to make better choices, while reflecting on their successes and shortcomings to become better problem-solvers. The three main goals of restorative justice are threaded throughout: (1) accountability- "I" (2) community safety- "T" (3) competency development- "K." I am excited about teaching my students to follow these steps when I give them a chance to "rethink" a choice they have made or a behavior they are exhibiting.
HOW I WILL USE THIS RESOURCE: In my classroom, students will be given a chance to RETHINK internally after a verbal warning (tier 1 consequence) by referring to the posters. If the behavior continues, and the student does not take the opportunity to make better choices, he/she will compete the RETHINK in a written format that will be filed and followed with a teacher-student conference (tier 2 consequence). The third tier will be involving parents and/or admin.
