          Dear Teachers, 
Welcome to our on-line Study Guide!  Here you will find materials to help you prepare your class to see our play about Restorative Justice, as well as suggested points for discussion and activities for classroom use after the presentation.
Our project objectives are:
  • To inform youth about their legal rights regarding the RJ option (as offender or victim)
  • To stimulate discussion about conflict resolution based on Restorative Justice principles
  • To analyze how the use of listening skills, an openness to other’s points of view, and creative problem solving skills help restore relationships and maintain peace and safety
  • To encourage young people to reflect on conflict in their own lives and how RJ practices might be applied
