Synopsis
One of the most vexing problems confronting educators today is the chronic achievement gap between black male students and their peers. In this inspiring and thought-provoking book, veteran educator Baruti K. Kafele offers a blueprint for lifting black males up and ensuring their success in the classroom and beyond.

Motivating Black Males to Achieve in School and in Life offers proven strategies for getting black male students in middle school and high school to value learning, improve their grades, and maintain high standards for themselves. The author shows how simple but powerful measures to instill self-worth in young black males can not only raise these students' achievement, but also profoundly alter their lives for the better. This book will help you to help students

- Reverse the destructive effects of negative influences, whether among peers or in the popular culture;

- Surmount adverse conditions at home or in their communities;

- Participate in mentorship programs with successful black male adults; and

- Take pride in their heritage by learning about great figures and achievements in black history.

Whether your school is urban or rural, all-black or mixed, you'll find that this insightful book addresses the root causes of low achievement among young black males and offers a clear path to overcoming them.
