The 2021 Niemeyer Series Featuring Dr. Gholnecsar (Gholdy) Muhammad
“Cultivating Genius and Joy in Education through Culturally and Historically Responsive Pedagogies”
The Niemeyer Series comprises lectures and symposia focused on urgent matters of educational interest. The Series is dedicated to the memory of John H. Niemeyer for his leadership in helping Bank Street College of Education become a national voice for children beyond practice and into policy.
This year, Dr. Gholnecsar (Gholdy) Muhammad will present the keynote in which she will offer a unique culturally and historically responsive approach toward the goal of cultivating genius and joy in education. This approach is essential for accelerating the growth of all students, and, uniquely, youth of color who have been traditionally underserved in learning standards, policies, and school practices. She will present her equity framework, called the HILL Model, to help educators teach toward developing students’ histories, identities, literacies, and liberation. Learn more
