Goosebumps. The Danger of a Single Story. On the first day of spring break, a number of Jefferson students chose to attend a rally for Trayvon Martin. Wearing their hoodies, they listened to speakers connect the killings of young black men over the years—from Mississippi to Florida to our home in Portland, Oregon. Two Jefferson students, Jalean Webb and Kelsie Turner, took the microphone and talked about feeling endangered.

Kelsie brought us to tears when he said, “I wore a Ninja Turtle hoodie today because I wish I could go back to a day in time when I didn’t have to worry about these problems, to a time when I didn’t have to worry about me being an almost grown man and people feeling like they have the right to shoot me.” Black male students are endangered. The vulnerability of black males came home for me some years ago when I co-taught a handful of young, mostly African American male 9th graders. ‘Unwieldy Influences’ I read my students the beginning of a vignette essay that I wrote on the topic: ‘Just Walk on By’ So What? 3 Creative Ways to Use Google Hangouts on Air in Schools - Synergyse.

Get Google Apps News & Tips by Amy Mayer Google Hangouts is most commonly thought of as an online Skype replacement with several key benefits including avoiding a hefty download, allowing up to 15 callers in one video chat in Google Apps for Education accounts (10 for consumer accounts), and providing all possible services totally free.

Here’s a video of Mr. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome - Theory and Book | Joy DeGruy. POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROMEAs a result of twelve years of quantitative and qualitative research Dr. DeGruy has developed her theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, and published her findings in the book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome – America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”.

The book addresses the residual impacts of generations of slavery and opens up the discussion of how the black community can use the strengths we have gained in the past to heal in the present. WHAT IS P.T.S.S.? P.T.S.S. is a theory that explains the etiology of many of the adaptive survival behaviors in African American communities throughout the United States and the Diaspora. It is a condition that exists as a consequence of multigenerational oppression of Africans and their descendants resulting from centuries of chattel slavery.

A form of slavery which was predicated on the belief that African Americans were inherently/genetically inferior to whites. Thus, resulting in M.A.P Th. Just%20Walk%20on%20By.pdf.

And second, why adolescent literacy in particular? Our answer to the first question was straightforward: If knowledge is power, then literacy is the key to the kingdom. Given the importance of literacy to a free society, it is no surprise that among the “three Rs” of formal schooling — reading, ’riting, and ’rithmetic — the first two emphasize literacy.
