Available on Amazon (Kindle Edition)

Available on Amazon (Kindle Edition)

Have you ever entered a classroom and wondered if your students would welcome you or receive you?  Have you ever worked in a new and unfamiliar neighborhood and wished you knew more about the students, parents, and families you would meet?

Well this manual is for you!  The goal of this manual is to help new, and existing, secondary math teachers prepare for and teach African American urban students.

I encourage you to read the manual and learn new ways to think about teaching African American urban students, or any students.  This manual will give you a new perspective on teaching and learning in urban school districts.

Once you have read the manual, please feel free to review it on or post comments on this page.

Thank you!
