- Publisher's Summary
- Recent national achievement data reveal significant outcome disparities between African American boys and other student groups by grade 4. This issue has drawn much attention from teachers, parents, researchers, and policy makers all across the United States of America. African American boys are not homogeneous in nature. Consequently, Read and Succeed: Practices to Support Reading Skills in African American Boys begins by identifying a host of potential factors that contribute to reading disengagement and under-achievement in African American boys in P-5 contexts. This book presents and discusses a multi-strategic framework for teachers, administrators, librarians, and parents to implement collaboratively to combat this issue. Read and Succeed additionally provides valuable and practical resources for teachers, administrators, and other school officials to use to increase reading engagement and achievement in African American boys.
