What I Learned and What I Learnt : Teaching English While Honoring Language and Culture at a Predominantly Black Institution, Paperback / softback Book

What I Learned and What I Learnt : Teaching English While Honoring Language and Culture at a Predominantly Black Institution Paperback / softback

Part of the Critical Black Pedagogy in Education series

Description

African Americans have viewed literacy as a key to upward mobility and freedom since before America's Reconstruction Era. However, African American's academic achievement continues to be plagued by the ever-widening achievement gap especially when their literacy skills are measured by standardized assessments that do not consider or value their culture, their experiences It is common to think that this is an issue in K-12 settings. However, research and practical experiences suggest that African American students' achievement continues to be affected at the post-secondary level where they are likely to be taught by faculty who have limited experience with the nuances of Black English (or African American Vernacular English AAVE). This book steps into that gap by offering a resource for teaching speakers of AAVE at the post-secondary level.
