Cultivating Genius Chapter 6

Marvelous Monday!

This week, we are discussing Chapter Six from Gholdy Muhammad’s book, Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy. In this chapter, Dr. Muhammad speaks to the importance of teaching Criticality.

Consider this quote from page 120, “Criticality calls for teachers and students to understand the ideologies and perspectives of marginalized communities (especially Black populations all over the world) and their ways of knowing and experiencing the world.
