African American Students Ages 13 – 16 Needed to Read with Me

25 Aug

Black Students Reading

I need 8 African American students ages 13 -16 who like to read Black history books to read with me. It doesn’t in matter which state they live. Ideally, I’ll have 1 male and 1 female in each age group.

What: We will read a couple Black history books together

Why: To read, discuss and gain a better understanding of Black History

When: Starting October 1, 2011

We are going to read one chapter per week. They have to write and discuss lessons they learned as well as their thoughts on what they read. It’s going to feel like extra homework, but it they will be more enlightened after the fact.

If you know of young people that are interested, please let me know. Thanks!
