Focused on preparing educators to teach African American students, this straightforward and teacher-friendly text features a careful balance of published scholarship, a framework for culturally relevant and critical pedagogy, research-based case studies of model teachers, and tested culturally relevant practical strategies and actionable steps teachers can adopt. Its premise is that teachers who understand Black culture as an asset rather than a liability and utilize teaching techniques that have been shown to work can and do have specific positive impacts on the educational experiences of African American children.

Review quote

"This book compels educators to reexamine, reimagine and revise the ways in which we perceive African American children and others who are perpetually underserved in schools across the United States. A thought-provoking, accessible, poignant, and moral call to all of us - educators, parents, researchers, policymakers, and politicians-this book shepherds us into posing an essential question in all the work we do: And How are the Children? This book educates as it enlightens!" - H. Richard Milner IV, Helen Faison Professor of Urban Education, University of Pittsburgh
