200+ Educational Strategies to Teach Children of Color
This book should be in the hands of every educator of ethnic children. This is a very informative and helpful book. I have learned a lot and seriously recommend that everyone read it!
One person found this helpful. I was quite disappointed in this book and it's overall idea that children of color are at some disadvantage if they are taught by white female teachers. His point is understood if we were talking about african-american children. It's interesting that he throws Hispanic students into the mix. What about the Asian or Indian or the various other cultures that make up the schools in America? Why does it always have to be about race. The entire first chapter of the book should be handed out to each black couple thinking about having a baby.
Learning about your culture begins in the home. Building a better home environment, and taking responsibility for raising that child would be better strategies to focus all his energy on in this book. Each year I have one-two black students whose parents inform me that the child may be nervous because this is the first time they've been around "real" white people!!
Am I to assume "they don't see color" either. These are the parents who refuse to get a library card yet they have the Jet and Ebony magazines on the coffee table, and the TV on BET. Black neighborhoods, homes, churches, retail shops, grocery stores tell me all I need to know about what their teaching their children when it comes to diversity, tolerance, and making sense of the world they live in.

I was really hoping to find some useful strategies to help me help my African American students succeed. There was nothing in this book to help me. One of her suggestions is to stop using so many "dittos". Excuse me but the ditto machine died decades ago. It felt as though she wrote this book in the 80s. In addition to that, the title suggests that the book contains more than strategies, but it doesn't.
It only contains a little over If you want her first , you have to buy her first book. I threw the book away. Can't believe I wasted my money on it. I used this book for a graduate level class assignment.
