Symposium Assignment - Voices of Restorative Justice

The yellow tablehighlights Ms. Gibson's/Aiken's assignment.  Please click on your Guideline Packet link below for detailed guidelines.

"The Pen symposium is a conference or meeting held in order to consider and discuss a particular topic. Through the Symposium, English III students and AP English students will become essayists by composing a battery of  research essays and eventually share their findings in a POETRY SLAM or 3-minute TED style talk on Symposium day. Each presentation should somehow seek to improve student morale and peer-to-peer conflict management through a concrete practical application of restorative justice at Summer Creek High school."~ Ms. Gibson and Ms. Aiken
