Don’t miss the chance to tune in to a Literacy Lenses #G2Great Twitter chat with Dr. Gholdy Muhammad, a Georgia State University associate professor of language, literacy and culture, and author of Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy.
Join the conversation by following #G2Great on Twitter starting at 8:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, June 18.
Dr. Muhammad will discuss critical topics from her book, including how to foster anti-racism practices in schools, and her Historically Responsive Literacy Framework to ensure equity in education and cultivate the genius of Black and Brown students by addressing the following learning pursuits: Identity, Skills, Intellect and Criticality.
The equity framework for teaching and learning presented in Cultivating Genius draws from Dr. Muhammad’s research on the learning pursuits of 19th-century Black literary societies, which promoted literacy as a conduit for lifelong learning, while also countering racism and oppression.
