A Restorative and Accountable Approach for Middle and High Schools

Shifting Gears, written by Carol Miller Lieber, Michele Tissiere, and Nicole Frazier, with a foreword written by renowned activist Marian Wright Edelman of the Children’s Defense Fund, supports schools to develop a restorative, problem-solving approach to creating systems of discipline and student support. Based on materials that Engaging Schools developed and has used extensively in the field, Shifting Gears fills a critical national need for an effective, equitable approach to discipline, climate, and culture issues in middle and high schools.

Section 1 sets the stage by providing foundational information about the discipline problem, features of an effective discipline model, the research behind those features, and the importance of understanding adolescent development and how it can shape more effective disciplinary policies and practices for middle and high school students. Section 2 takes a deep dive into each component of an accountable and restorative schoolwide discipline and student support model, and offers practical “how-to” guidance for recalibrating the schoolwide discipline and student support model or implementing targeted improvements.
