"How do we think about high-quality instruction and high-quality text to shape positive life outcome trajectories?"
-Prof. Alfred Tatum
The new publication, Teaching Black Boys in Elementary Grades: Advanced Disciplinary Reading and Writing to Secure Their Futures, is available from Dr. Alfred W. Tatum.
At a critical stage in literacy development, Tatum's book details the expectations and rigorous practices across disciplines to reinvigorate the alignment of intellectual tradition with young Black males.
The book also includes a multidimensional model of reading and writing, student writing samples, multidisciplinary lesson plans, and more.
