In his staff development companion to Reading for Their Life, Alfred Tatum demonstrates the power enabling texts can have to change the life of African American adolescent males—and every student in the class.

On this powerful DVD, Alfred takes you into Deborah Osher’s classroom to see how his strategies work in regular, mixed-race/mixed-gender settings. Through his coaching commentary and her teaching moves, you’ll see how to leverage enabling texts to connect black, white, and Latino male and female students with empowering reading and writing instruction.

You’ll witness the transformation that can happen when students begin reading and writing texts that they find meaningful and significant. You’ll also see firsthand how by constructing their own “textual lineages”—lists of books, poems and other works they believe they will always find meaningful—they draw a roadmap for school and life by developing academic and real-world resiliency.
