Section Description

This course will rest upon two pillars of learning. Pillar No 1. will introduce UVM graduate students to a theoretical knowledge of both Restorative Practices (RP) within school settings and Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) methodology. Pillar No. 2. will then allow students the opportunity to apply these models through direct engagement with local youth from Burlington High School. It is our hope that upon completion of this course, these two pillars will undergird a transformative experience for all involved: one in which local youth will be empowered to take up the tools of RP and YPAR to be agents of positive, even liberatory change within their school; and that UVM graduate students will advance their critical consciousness along with gaining the skills to advance critical research and pedagogy in their future professional lives.

Section Expectation

This is a service learningcourse. This means that some of the course content will be delivered in a traditional face-to-face format and some will be delivered through service learning and community engagement components. Participants will be learning about restorative practices and youth participatory action research, and then will be applying that learning in facilitating a 10 day class designed for local high school students called “Change Your School”. Course dates that span the timeframe during which the high school students are on campus are 5/31-6/14. The upfront training in Restorative Practices and Youth Participatory Action Research will be 5/22-5/25. Class meeting time for each day the course is scheduled will be 9-2. All students are expected to use Blackboard as the course management site.

Evaluation

1. Participation: Participation is central to ensuring that course learning objectives are met. We have adjusted homework expectations so that the majority of hours you are putting into the course will be in the direct service learning activities with high school students. It is critical that students be present for the first five days of the course where training in restorative practices and youth participatory action research will occur. During the remaining course dates students will be required to attend each class session to assist in facilitation of the high school students’ YES program class. 20 points 2. Electronic Discussion Posts: Throughout the course, students will be asked to engage in reflective and analytical Blackboard discussion posts. You will be asked to initiate substantive posts that display critical reflection upon our learning, and to reply to the posts of your classmates. You also be may also be asked to respond to specific prompts designed to connect theory to practice. 30 points 3. In-vivo, Experiential Engagement: Throughout our work with local BHS students, the faculty will supervise you in constructing and facilitating empowering moments, events and activities that relate to RP and YPAR. Through a transparent process, your skills at conceptualizing, planning, implementing and evaluating the youth encounter experiences will be measured by faculty. 50 points
