Literacy Practices for African-American Male Adolescents: The Students at the Center Series


This paper, placing student-centered learning in the context of race and gender, reviews literature on factors that impede reading achievement, provides a socio-historical perspective for advancing African-American male literacy, proposes a framework of literacy instruction and discusses implications for research, policy and practice.

Focusing on African-American males, the author describes how current school literacy practices and policies are overly generic and miss the mark.
