Symposium Assignment-Restorative Justice

The yellow table highlights Mrs. Gibson's assignment.  Please click on the Assignment Packet link below for detailed guidelines.

The symposium is a conference or meeting held in order to consider and discuss a particular topic. Through the Symposium, students will become essayists by composing a battery of 3 AP level research essays and eventually share their findings in a 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.
