This year, we will be using Dr. Gholdy Muhammad's book "Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy" for the base of our K-12 social studies collaboration work. Dr. Muhammad outlines five components of authentic student engagement: Identity, Skill, Intellectual Connection, Criticality, and Joy. Her work goes beyond the general curricular focus on content and skills, adding in the pieces of the social and political context of the students' communities.

Along with our book study, we will discuss trends and topics in Social Studies, visit our Social Studies State Standards work, and share ideas to improve and benefit instruction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will create and establish professional relationships with other educators in their field.
  • Participants will contribute and consider the contribution of others to the collaborative team.
  • Participants will gain knowledge and skills for authentic student engagement.
