Thank you for attending, reaching out, or sharing this resource that is a starter for creating a library of #blackboylit. If you use the attached list, please assure you are attributing my work: Dr. Kim Parker. Thank you. African American literature for black boys Bibliography_Scholastic_July ’18.
I’m presenting at the Scholastic Reading Summits over the next two weeks. On Thursday, July 12, I’ll be in Raleigh, NC (OMG, sold out!!!) and the following week on July 19, in Greenwich, CT .
My workshop is officially titled: Creating an Independent Reading Canon for Black Boys, and we’ll spend some time talking books that resonate with Black boys, the wonderful world of #blackboylit and how to make sure we’re making informed, critical decisions about what texts we include in our libraries and our instructional practices, and, of course, how independent reading is gonna save us all. Because, it just IS.
If you’re looking for the bibliography from this session to use as a start for building your library, you can find it here: African American literature for black boys Bibliography_Scholastic
I hope to see you either here or in the social media universe. I’ll post my fall workshops as they are booked (which reminds me, I still have some availability for PD if you’re looking for someone whose work is useful, relevant, and effective).
Have a great summer!
