Description

This reader-friendly, interactive staff development resource is designed to help teachers deal with some of the main barriers-particularly "mental baggage"-that impede their progress with African American students. The Power of One underscores an important point about intrinsic motivation that is frequently neglected in the equity literature-that teachers will personally benefit from increasing their efficacy with students of colour. The author skillfully blends compelling first-person narratives, personal growth exercises, and informational text in a manner that engages both hearts and minds.
