Cultivating Genius Instructional Plans
Engaged Educators from across Wisconsin collaborated with Dr. Gholdy Muhammad to create instructional plans that reflect the 5 pursuits for teaching and learning: identity, skill development, intellectualism, criticality, and joy.
Students will learn what the 13 principles of the Black Lives Matter Movement mean and consider how the principles show up in their lives and make our communities stronger.
This unit will examine the scientific concepts of water cycle and watersheds. It will also go into historical events that have contributed to increased access to clean water as well as crises that exist around the world. We will explore the question ‘is water is a right’ and explore if it should be a shared societal priority to keep it clean. Finally, students will advocate for the importance of caring for and cleaning the water around us.
This lesson uses Dr. Gholdy Muhammad's Historically Responsive Literacy Framework to develop a lesson about water protectors that uses the Wisconsin Environmental Education Standards (ELS) for middle school students.
