Learning Social Responsibility in Schools: A Restorative Practice
Macready, Tom
Educational Psychology in Practice, v25 n3 p211-220 Sep 2009
Vygotsky regarded the site of learning to be within a matrix of relational action. From this perspective, learning social responsibility will involve a focus on the learning environments that are made available in schools. Adapting the concept of restorative justice to a school context, restorative practice offers a range of relevant learning opportunities. These learning opportunities relate to episodes of wrong-doing, and to actions that reflect the values and principles of a socially responsible school culture. The importance of dialogue, respect for "the other" and social collaboration will be evident in school-based restorative practices.
