Restorative Literacies: Creating a Community of Care in Schools

Restorative Literacies: Creating a Community of Care in Schools


Dive deeper into literacy in your classroom.

Learn how to incorporate individual students’ stories so they experience racially, culturally, linguistically, and economically responsive instruction in multiple forms of literacies.

Restorative Literacies shows you how to build and strengthen positive relationships between readers’ backgrounds and perspectives, their variable skills, proficiencies, and fluencies; the multiple texts they encounter; and the authors of such texts.  

With 30 years of experience in education, Deborah L. Wolter merges multiple literacies with cognitive and metacognitive processes of reading proficiency, fluency, and comprehension and writing effectiveness.

“Wolter offers educators a definitive deep dive into transforming a classroom into a vital and inclusive space. Through storytelling and empowering the voices of students, Restorative Literacies takes restorative practices beyond ‘managing’ behavior and towards creating classrooms that honor human dignity and the uniqueness of every young person’s experience.” - John Bailie, Ph.D., President, International Institute for Restorative Practices
