Young Adult Lit/Crit

It seems appropriate to end February and our focus on titles by African-American writers with this transcript from yesterday’s live conversation, “Getting Real About Race in Schools: Addressing Racial Issues in Classrooms” sponsored by ED WEEK.

The moderators were:

Mica Pollock, an associate professor of education at Harvard University, and editor of Everyday Antiracism: Getting Real About Race in School, due to be published later this year by the New Press of New York City.

Karolyn Tyson, an associate professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and author of a chapter called “Providing Equal Access to Gifted Education,” that appears in Ms. Pollock’s book.

Call-in’s to the chat provide an interesting range of educators’ voices.

I highly recommend reading their questions and the moderators’ responses. KES
