Motivating Black Males to Achieve

Jersey City, NJ (BlackNews.com) — As the achievement gap continues to pose one of the greatest challenges to educators at all levels, the plight of the Black male learner poses an even greater challenge as evidenced by national achievement, dropout and suspension data. Motivating Black Males to Achieve in School and in Life provides educators with proven strategies toward motivating their Black male learners at all grade levels to take a greater interest in school, learning and preparing for academic excellence.

Jersey City, NJ based educator, Principal Baruti Kafele draws from his 20 years of experience in teaching Black males and turning around troubled urban schools to explain:

* Why the challenges of educating Black male students are frequently different from educating other student populations.
* What all Black male students need in their classroom experiences.
* How to assess your own attitudes and abilities to educate Black males.
* Which major problems outside of school could change the way you teach Black males.
* How to address the root causes of Black male self-identity.
* Why and how to develop a young mens empowerment program.

Motivating Black Males to Achieve in School and in Life helps educators to understand why lack of proficiency in reading, writing, and math among Black males is a symptom of deeper problems that are generally ignored or overlooked. It provides educators with solutions that can be put into their daily practice right away to improve the performance of their Black male students.
