Keynote Title: Cultivating Healing and Joy Through Culturally and Historically Responsive Pedagogy
Keynote Description: In this virtual foundational session, Dr. Gholdy Muhammad will clearly
define culture, equity, anti-racism, joy, and culturally & historically responsive education. Participants will understand culture and will be charged to engage in self-identity work. Dr. Muhammad will also introduce participants to the model of culturally and historically responsive education (CHRE).
Join us as we welcome Dr. Gholdy Muhammad, a professor at Georgia State and the author of "Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy." The four learning standards of identity, skills, intellect, and criticality are areas of growth that EVERY child needs in every class. "We want to help cultivate students who will not be neutral on oppression or students who would contribute to more oppression in the world. Instead, we want to cultivate young people who, across the course of their lifetimes, will disrupt, disquiet, or unhinge oppression" (Dr. Gholdy Muhammad).
