Curriculum Representation Matters

Based on this idea that African American adolescents are unsuccessful in rigorous academic and social contexts, I seek to explore: 1) What are the academic and social impact for African American students when multicultural, African American literature and nonfiction works are an essential aspect to the English Language Arts curricula? 2) What are the different forms of African American literature and how does it influence student perceptions? 3) When using culturally relevant text for African American students, what instructional best practices should be incorporated into the classroom to meet the needs of African American students?
