Better Than Carrots or Sticks

Better Than Carrots or Sticks, written by educators Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey, advocates for the use of restorative practices in classrooms, and provides practical strategies for building a respectful and collaborative classroom climate where students and teachers resolve conflict together.

Written for school educators and administrators, the book begins with an overview of the restorative practices movement in education and goes on to provide practical information and ideas for establishing classroom structures and (formal and informal) restorative practices that support peacemaking and development of positive interpersonal and conflict resolution skills in students.
