As a general practice, most classroom circles should be focused on community building and regulation. Until a deeper level of trust is established within the classroom it isn't recommended to use classroom circles directly for harm repair or more vulnerable topics. When bullying has occurred within a classroom it is recommended that you FIRST hold a smaller conference with only the students involved to repair relationships and prevent shaming. Then when you run this Responsive Circle on Bullying the focus should be "unmet needs" rather than "harm." The following script is an example of a topic that addresses the ‘unmet needs’ of the classroom without targeting one student.
