As teachers prepare for school this summer, many are also looking for new tools to dismantle racism or racial bias in their classrooms. We can help.
For a limited time, teachers can use AdoptAClassroom.org funds to register for Constructing the Innocent Classroom, a proven online training that helps create positive relationships with students. Learn more about Innocent Classroom on their website.
Constructing the Innocent Classroom is a child-specific response to diverse classrooms. It is teacher-driven and child-centered. Teachers learn a relationship-building process that dismantles racism and racial bias by preparing educators to identify and positively engage each child’s essential motivation.
The Innocent Classroom methodology undermines the impact that implicit racial bias and stereotype threat have on teacher-child relationships. Authentic relationships between child and teacher, based on each child’s good, become the foundation for increased classroom engagement and academic performance, decreased disciplinary incidents as well as improved job satisfaction for educators. When a child is liberated from the reality of stereotype threat and implicit bias, they are able to engage naturally with their education and reach their unlimited potential.
Constructing the Innocent Classroom is offered as a four-session, two hours each, synchronous on-line course.
