Restorative practices don't just apply for core subjects. This is a lesson and hand out that will help a fine arts teacher create a positive and safe environment in the beginning of the semester. I love spending a whole a class period on creating a respect agreement with each class. Once an agreement is created, each student and I will sign the poster and it will be hung up in the front of the room. I like to hang up underneath the front white board. Each class has their own poster that we refer back to all the time. When a new student joins the class, we have them sign the respect agreement.
