Welcome to the Teaching Academy
STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY
The Johns Hopkins Teaching Academy stands in solidarity with those who are grieving the loss of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, David McAtee, Freddie Gray, and all black people killed by the police. We grieve the countless lives cut short by structural racism and white supremacy and all those living under constant daily oppression. The disproportionate impact of the current pandemic on people of color highlights the racism and inequity that are entrenched in our social systems of health, education, research, business, industry and justice.
We reaffirm our commitment to developing and sharing Culturally Responsive Teaching practices, instructional approaches that foster inclusive classrooms and critical pedagogy so that all learners know that their thoughts and ideas matter and that regardless of the discipline – they belong. It will not be enough but it will be one way that we can work towards dismantling the systems of inequality that exist in our institutes of higher education.
We welcome you to help us find new ways to connect and support each other, and to helping create the kind of change we want to see. Please do not hesitate to reach out with ideas or requests, firstname.lastname@example.org.
