Restorative questions are a series of questions used to process an incident of harm between individuals. When a situation has occurred, the person(s) who created the issue(s) are asked a series of questions and given time to think about their answers prior to answering. The questions focus on the incident, and how the choices that were made affected them and others. A series of restorative questions are also answered by the individual(s) impacted by the incident, allowing them to process their feelings and determine what they need to feel that things are “right.” Restorative questions help individuals to develop empathy and problem-solving skills. In addition, these questions help to hold individuals accountable for repairing the consequences of their choices.

Also included is a problem solving conflict wheel that consists of 12 options students can use to try to solve problems on their own. The wheel is white in color, allowing the students to color and decorate as she/he chooses. It is best to go over the wheel with the student(s) when there are not currently issues, as students may be more receptive to learning. Discuss and role-play each strategy to demonstrate what each strategy looks like is helpful. I feel it is also helpful to hang the wheel in your classroom/office as a visual reminder as well.
This wheel can be used in a few different ways:
1) Have students roll dice and select the option the dice lands on.
2) Have students create and attach a spinner to spin for an option.
3) Have students cut up the options and choose one from a box.
4) Have students discuss what they feel the best option is for them.
