Our first Professional Day in June 2018

Lisa Baker and Alisa Braithwaite, English teachers at Milton Academy, started the Humanities Workshop, a consortium of secondary schools, in order to reassert the critical importance of the humanities in addressing urgent social issues, to promote and to practice civil exchange and engagement, and to encourage critical reasoning and perspective taking, along with rich historical context. We believe that a humanities approach to social issues generates empathy in students, inspiring them to engage deeply in the world around them, now and in the future, with their whole selves.

Our pilot schools are:

Boston Collegiate Charter School

Academy of the Pacific Rim Charter School

Boston College High School

Boston Latin School

Milton Academy
