Studies have found that Restorative Dialogue Circles have a powerful effect on children as both a form of discipline and as an opportunity for growth. Give students tools for creating and maintaining community and provide a different model for dealing with conflict in peaceful and creative ways.  Congratulations Glenview Elementary School1

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 1, 2014 5:56 PM

Dialogue circles which genuinely engage students and open up communication are incredible. The key is setting respectful parameters in which people can authentically communicate and be safe in doing so. This is about being and becoming people and not doing learning.

Mississippi lawmaker pushes for dyslexia awareness @lawrecneschool @cdcowen @ryan_masa

Mississippi lawmaker pushes for dyslexia awareness @lawrecneschool @cdcowen @ryan_masa | AdLit | Scoop.it
Rep. Steven Palazzo and his wife, Lisa, recognized about three years ago that their youngest son, Bennett, was struggling with reading so they hired tutors, but nothing seemed to work.

They had the fourth-grader tested recently and learned he had dyslexia, a learning disability that involves difficulty learning to read.

“When he realized he wasn’t slow or dumb, his attitude changed. He knows he’s smart and knows there’s a way out,” said Palazzo, a Republican representing Mississippi’s 4th District. “I just wish we could have caught this when he was in first or second grade.’’

Palazzo and Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana are on a mission to raise awareness about dyslexia. Cassidy’s daughter, Kate, also is dyslexic.
