About this Event
In this talk, Dr. Gholdy Muhammad will discuss her historically responsive literacy model for teaching and learning. This model is grounded in the historical excellence found in Black literary societies during the nineteenth century.
In this talk, Muhammad offers a unique, culturally and historically responsive approach to literacy instruction developed from a blend of multiple pedagogical approaches. This approach is essential for all students, especially youth of color, who traditionally have been marginalized in learning standards, policies, and school practices. The equity framework will help educators toward advanced literacy learning goals for teaching, research and policy. Participants will be encouraged to be more inclusive of their teaching and research using these collective goals while learning the importance of integrating racial and cultural responsiveness. Additionally, participants will see sample lessons of culturally and historically responsive literacy education in K-12 and higher education.
