50 early childhood literacy strategies
Beaty, Janice J.
50 Early Childhood Literacy Strategies is the answer to the early childhood teacher's dilemma of how to teach reading to children 3, 4, and 5 years of age as mandated by the state and national governments. This book presents an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand approach involving young children's own emergence into the world of speaking and listening, reading and writing. Teachers will quickly learn what picture books and activities to use with children, how to use them, and how children can benefit from their use. They will learn what to expect as young children's writing emerges from scribbles to pictures and real words. Finally, they will come to terms with the concept of emergent literacy as it appears in preschool children and evolves into conventional literacy as it is taught in elementary school.

Alienable rights : the exclusion of African Americans in a white man's land, 1619-2000
Adams, Francis D.
In a devastating narrative that spans more than three centuries, from colonial times to the present day, Alienable Rights reveals how whites have excluded blacks from virtually every area of American life, denying them full citizenship and equality. Brought to America early in the seventeenth century, the first slaves were treated in much the same way as indentured white servants who had come from England. After only a few years, however, whites ostracized blacks, who were viewed as an inferior race, and passed laws making their enslavement permanent, denying even free blacks the most basic rights enjoyed by whites. Though many slaves fought honorably in the Revolutionary War, earning their freedom, the Constitution (1787) sanctioned slavery, making it -- in the words of one of the signers -- the document's

Contemporary Native American architecture : cultural regeneration and creativity
Krinsky, Carol Herselle.
Why, during the past thirty years, has there been a dramatic change in architecture by and for Native Americans? How does it reflect the revival of language and the renewal and invention of dance, music, and other performance, and the remarkable burst of creativity in Native American novels and poetry? And since architecture requires technical expertise and money, how does this change reflect alterations in the economic, legal, and political situation of American Indians in the past decades? At no other time since the European invasions have the Native nations been as determined to set their own agendas for building or been as successful in reaching their architectural goals. They now claim authority in planning what they need for modern life - office buildings, schools, clinics, religious and community structures, urban cultural centers, houses, and museums, even commercial buildings and casinos. Those agendas often include strategies for making sure that the buildings are culturally appropriate or focus on collective decisions that embody community values brought from the past to the present. In Contemporary Native American Architecture, Carol Herselle Krinsky examines the historical and legal background of this movement of cultural regeneration through the medium of architecture, and records responses of Native Americans to ever-changing cultural situations.
Crossings : a white man's journey into Black America
Harrington, Walt, 1950- author.
One day in the dentist's office journalist Walt Harrington heard a casual racist joke that left him enraged. Married to a black woman, Harrington is the father of two biracial children. His experience in the dentist's office made him realize not only that the joke was about his own children but also that he really knew very little about what it was like to be a black person in America. After this rude awakening, Harrington set off on a twenty- five-thousand-mile journey through black America, talking with scores of black and white people along the way, including an old sharecropper, a city police chief, a jazz trumpeter, a convicted murderer, a welfare mother, and a corporate mogul. In Crossings, winner of the Gustavus Myers Award for the Study of Human Rights, he relates what he learned as he listened.

Effective programs for Latino students
"The purpose of this book is to present the current state of research on effective instructional programs for Latino students in elementary and secondary grades.

Embracing race : why we need race-conscious education policy
Moses, Michele S.
With clarity, passion, and creativity, Michele Moses offers a new and promising lens for viewing the unsolved issues of race and education. In this book, Moses provides a comprehensive examination of four major race-conscious educational policies: bilingual education, multicultural curricula, affirmative action, and remedial education. She argues, convincingly, that such policies are critical to fostering self-determination and personal autonomy in students who will otherwise be left with a deficient education. Presenting a strong, theoretically grounded case for race-conscious educational policies, this volume offers a new framework for examining the complex interaction between race, education, opportunities, and justice. Some of the important questions addressed in this volume include: -- What must the educational system do to promote social justice for students of color and poor students? -- What is required to help these students to develop self-determination? -- How will race-conscious educational policies help to provide a fair education for all students?

Hispanic nation : culture, politics, and the constructing of identity
Fox, Geoffrey E.
A new ethnic identity is being constructed in the United States: the Hispanic nation. Overcoming age-old racial, regional, and political differences, Americans of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and other Spanish-language origins are beginning to imagine themselves as a single ethnic community - which by the turn of the century may become the United States' largest and most influential minority. Only in recent years have great numbers of Hispanics begun to consider themselves as related within a single culture. Hispanics are redefining their own images and agendas, shaping a population, and paving wider pathways to power. In the process, they are changing both themselves and the culture, government, and urban habits of the communities around them. In this ground-breaking book, Geoffrey Fox shows how and why Hispanics are changing the United States. Based on interviews, observations, and extensive research, Hispanic Nation examines why such diverse people are imagining themselves as one; the politics of turning a statistical fiction into a social reality; the impact of the Spanish-language media on Hispanics' self-images; ethnic consciousness and political movements (Cesar Chavez and the farm workers movement, the Young Lords and La Raza Unida, Puerto Rican and Mexican encounters in the Midwest); controversies surrounding

Racism : an American cauldron
Doob, Christopher Bates.
This brief paperback text provides an analysis of racism, not race relations. It uses the concept of internal colonialism, a prominent conflict theory throughout to emphasize the oppressive nature of American racism. Using a powerful and direct writing style, the book uses two decisive levels of analysis: the broad macro-level analysis of forces producing racism and the micro-level focus on case-study material demonstrating the intimate workings of racist reality. Beginning with a historical background on America's main racial minorities, it then examines the effects of racism on each group in areas of politics, criminal justice, violence, work, education, family, and mass media.

Tundra teacher : a memoir
Foley, John, 1960-
First, he was a newspaper reporter, arts columnist, and obituary writer for the Anchorage Times. Little in journalism prepares him to be a schoolteacher in rural Alaska, where he teams as much as he teaches and finds out what it means to be in the racial minority. Foley teaches in the remote Eskimo village of Gambell on St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea. There, he and his unhappy wife are immersed in the Yup'ik culture. She feels lost and isolated, always the outsider, as they struggle to adjust. Foley helps haul in a whale, looks out for polar bears on the way to school, and learns that a quick way to earn respect is on the basketball court. Winning acceptance is another matter. Later, divorced, a philosophical Foley moves far inland to teach and coach basketball in the Athabascan Indian village of Tetlin on the Alaska Highway near the U.S.-Canada border, where the length of a road trips is measured in days rather than hours. In Tetlin, he has given up women temporarily. Or perhaps they have given up on him.
