Topic outline

  • Restorative Justice Academy

    Welcome to the Restorative Justice Academy, brought to you by Restorative Justice Coalition! There are nine lessons in this course.

    Many assignments are reflection assignments, or essay based quizzes. We never grade or evaluate on grammar, spelling, or mechanics of a written assignment, only on your expression of your competency on the lesson. However, if you are paraphrasing or direct quoting something you learnt from someone else's words, whether from one of our provided sources, or an external source, you must still cite the source. We do not care about using a formal format to cite, as long as you make it clear the idea is not yours. An example could be as follows, where you number your source, and then create a references line at the bottom of your submission:

    "and the sky is blue. (1)

    REFERENCES:

    (1) John Smith: Article: What Color is the Sky"

    Some of our assignments require manual grading. This academy is grassroots led, so please allow up to three (3) days for manual graded assignments to become graded.

    Accessibility: We are committed to access and equity. We do not charge for this course, but do encourage donations. Unfortunately, due to limited resources, we are only able to offer this course in English. If there are any barriers preventing you from taking this course to its fullest extent, please email admin@restorativejusticecoalition.org and we will make our best genuine effort to find a solution. 

    Grammar in the Modules: Just as we do not evaluate your writing on grammar or spelling, we are not concerned with ours either. We do not have the resources to hire a proof-reader. However, if you see an error, you can help us by emailing admin@restorativejusticecoalition.org.

    Copyright and Accountability Statement: Our intent was to only use information that could be found on the internet at no cost. If you believe we have used a source that belongs to someone else, and it should not be on here, or if we did not provide appropriate credit, please help us hold ourselves accountable, while assuming best intentions, by sending an email at admin@restorativejusticecoalition.org
