Transformative Practices for Minority Student Success Accomplishments of Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions

Transformative Practices for Minority Student Success Accomplishments of Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions

Author: Dina C. Maramba Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/02/2020

Between 2000 and 2015 the Asian American Pacific Islander population grew from nearly 12 million to over 20 million-at 72% percent recording the fastest growth rate of any major ethnic and racial group in the US. This book, the first to focus wholly on Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Institutions (AANAPISIs) and their students, offers a corrective to misconceptions about these populations and documents student services and leadership programs, innovative pedagogies, models of community engagement, and collaborations across academic and student affairs that have transformed student outcomes. The contributors stress the importance of disaggregating this population that is composed of over 40 ethnic groups that vary in immigrant histories, languages, religion, educational attainment levels, and socioeconomic status. This book recognizes there is a large population of underserved Asian American and Pacific Islander college students who are in severe need of attention given their educational disparities. The contributors describe effective practices that enable instructors to validate the array of students' specific backgrounds and circumstances within the contexts of developing such skills as writing, leadership and cross-cultural communication for their class cohorts as a whole. They demonstrate that paying attention to the diversity of student experiences in the teaching environment enriches the learning for all. The timeliness of this volume is important because of the keen interest across the nation for creating equitable environments for our increasingly diverse students. This book serves as an important resource for predominantly white institutions who are admitting greater numbers of API and other underrepresented students. It also offers models for other minority serving institutions who face similar complexities of multiple national or ethnic groups within their populations, provides ideas and inspiration for the AANAPISI community, and guidance for institutions considering applying for AANAPISI status and funding. This book is for higher education administrators, faculty, researchers, student affairs practitioners, who can learn from AANAPISIs how to successfully engage and teach students with widely differing cultural backgrounds and educational circumstances.

Taking Up Space The Black Girl's Manifesto for Change

Taking Up Space The Black Girl's Manifesto for Change

Author: Chelsea Kwakye, Ore Ogunbiyi Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/02/2020

THE FLAGSHIP 2019 RELEASE OF #MERKY BOOKS ____________________________ 'Brilliant' CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS 'Hugely important' PAULA AKPAN 'Essential' BERNARDINE EVARISTO ____________________________ As a minority in a predominantly white institution, taking up space is an act of resistance. Recent Cambridge grads Chelsea and Ore experienced this first-hand, and wrote Taking Up Space as a guide and a manifesto for change. FOR BLACK GIRLS: Understand that your journey is unique. Use this book as a guide. Our wish for you is that you read this and feel empowered, comforted and validated in every emotion you experience, or decision that you make. FOR EVERYONE ELSE: We can only hope that reading this helps you to be a better friend, parent, sibling or teacher to black girls living through what we did. It's time we stepped away from seeing this as a problem that black people are charged with solving on their own. It's a collective effort. And everyone has a role to play. Featuring honest conversations with students past and present, Taking Up Space goes beyond the buzzwords of diversity and inclusion and explores what those words truly mean for young black girls today. ____________________________ #Merky Books was set up by publishers Penguin Random House and Stormzy in June 2018 to find and publish the best writers of a new generation and to publish the stories that are not being heard. #Merky Books aims to open up the world of publishing, and this year has launched a New Writer's Prize and will soon be launching a #Merky Books traineeship. 'I know too many talented writers that don't always have an outlet or a means to get their work seen, and hopefully #Merky Books can now be a reference point for them to say I can be an author , and for that to be a realistic and achievable goal... Reading and writing as a kid were integral to where I am today and I, from the bottom of my heart, cannot wait to hear your stories and get them out into the big wide world.' STORMZY

Schooling for Critical Consciousness Engaging Black and Latinx Youth in Analyzing, Navigating, and Challenging Racial Injustice

Schooling for Critical Consciousness Engaging Black and Latinx Youth in Analyzing, Navigating, and Challenging Racial Injustice

Author: Scott Seider, Daren Graves Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/01/2020

Schooling for Critical Consciousness addresses how schools can help youth of color resist the negative effects of racial injustice and challenge its root causes. Scott Seider and Daren Graves draw on a four-year longitudinal study examining how five different mission-driven urban high schools foster critical consciousness among their students. The book presents vivid portraits of the schools as they implement various programs and practices, and traces the impact of these approaches on the students themselves. The authors make a unique contribution to the existing scholarship on critical consciousness and culturally responsive teaching by comparing the roles of different schooling models in fostering various dimensions of critical consciousness and identifying specific programming and practices that contributed to this work. Through their research with more than 300 hundred students of color, Seider and Graves aim to help educators strengthen their capacity to support young people like these in learning to analyze, navigate, and challenge racial injustice. Schooling for Critical Consciousness provides school leaders and educators with specific programming and practices they can incorporate into their own school contexts to support the critical consciousness development of the youth they serve.

Changing Academia Forever Black Student Leaders Analyze the Movement They Led

Changing Academia Forever Black Student Leaders Analyze the Movement They Led

Author: Kitty Kelly Epstein, Bernard Stringer Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/01/2020

The most effective and long-lasting student strike in U.S. History took place at San Francisco State College in 1968. The first Black Student Union, the first Black Studies Department, the only College of Ethnic Studies, and the admission of thousands of students of color resulted from this four-and-a-half-month strike which shut down 80% of the campus. It has been called the movement which changed academia forever. Black students were only a small percentage of those on campus, but they managed to engage thousands of white, Latino, Asian, and indigenous students; SDS and the Third World Liberation Front; the faculty union; and a huge portion of the San Francisco Community. In the end, they were able to win most of their 15 demands. The book is written by two participants in the strike, one a member of the BSU leadership. Oral histories of strike leaders are integrated with discussion of the events and significance of this movement. What were the politics and strategies? Why was the strike successful and what are the insights for today's mass movements?

Fostering Collaborations Between African American Communities and Educational Institutions

Fostering Collaborations Between African American Communities and Educational Institutions

Author: Patrice Wynette Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/12/2019

Historically, African American communities were marked by a strong sense of community, promoted by limited resources and racial segregation. However, with integration, African American populations grew less concentrated in the same areas, and this population of people began to rely less on each other. In an effort to attain equality, which still at times feels elusive and challenged, the sense of community and impact of education once prevalent among African Americans has suffered. Fostering Collaborations Between African American Communities and Educational Institutions is a pivotal reference source that explores pre-segregation experiences of community and education, as well as the changes among HBCUs and public education in predominately African American and poor areas. The book sheds light on the relationship between racial and educational disparities and reveals the impact of community and cultural co-dependence in moving African Americans toward a more socially equitable place within American culture. Covering topics such as the achievement gap, community relationships, and teacher education, this publication is ideally designed for educators, higher education faculty, HBCUs, researchers, policymakers, non-profit organizers, historians, sociologists, academicians, and students.

Black Immigrants in North America Essays on Race, Immigration, Identity, Language, Hip-Hop, Pedagogy, and the Politics of Becoming Black

Author: Awad Ibrahim Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2019

Black Immigrants in North America is a collection of cutting-edge essays from renowned scholar Awad Ibrahim.

When dealing with immigration and immigrants, Black immigrants are hardly mentioned, particularly continental Africans. Ibrahim discussed and analyzes subjects ranging from Critical Race Theory to an economy of hospitality to the intersection of race, language, and identity. This book is destined to be a foundational text in a variety of courses dealing with race and immigration.
