The new book Revolutionary Love: Creating Culturally Inclusive Literacy Classroom by Professors Kamania Wynter-Hoyte and Eliza G. Braden tells us the answer is A LOT!
Including influences from bell hooks, Maya Angelou, Paulo Freire, Ibram X. Kendi, and many more, this title provides practice to incorporate teaching strategies to reach Black and Latine students.
The book details the idea of educators centering love and culturally responsive teaching, providing more profound, inclusive literacy experiences.
Wynter-Hoyte and Braden also provide diverse children's literature to pair with lessons.
We also wanted to include a few scholarly articles for discussion to give context to the theoretical frameworks and research of love and social justice in education.
Research shows expectations influence outcomes.
What are your expectations for you and your students or young library patrons? Are they high or low, in between?
The book, 'Expect the Most, Provide the Best: How High Expectations, Outstanding Instruction, & Curricular Innovations Help All Students Succeed By Robert L. Green, PhD., provides a guide focusing on expectations and how they can affect learning outcomes, especially for Black and Brown students.
Primarily for teachers, this book also works well for those in library or community organizations working with our K-12 young people. The book lists resources, voices from the field, reframing mindsets, and accountability.
Library managers, parents, principals, teachers, and community workers, use this book to reflect on and create discussions around what high expectations look like from your perspective and how to change a 'poverty of spirit' mindset to one of persistence and limitless potential.
