Book News Annotation:

For teachers, Kafele, an educational consultant and principal who has extensive experience as a teacher, outlines strategies for helping black male students in middle and high school value learning, improve their grades, and boost self-worth. Based on his experiences, as well as research and professional development workshops he conducted, he details ways to meet these students' needs in the classroom, such as by understanding motivation, learning styles, parental involvement, and teacher attitudes; dealing with community, family, and self-identity crises they face; and developing an empowerment program. There is no index. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
