The Cabot Anti Racist Committee will run a book club with staff using the text “Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy” by Gholdy Muhammad. This book will support educators in designing instruction that reflects students’ identities and engages them by recognizing their identity and the identity of their peers. The project will also be aligned with the district goal of meeting the needs of all learners to provide educational equity because it is designed for teachers to further their understanding of how to use literacy to empower students and help them think critically within our current socio-political-cultural context.
