Very good condition. No interior writing or highlighting. African American Middle-Income Parents: How Are They Involved in Their Children's Literacy Development? (HC) (Literacy, Language, and Learning) (Hardcover) By Robinson, Ethel Swindell; Tatum, Alfred W. Product Description Ethel Robinson has written an amazing book. As she wisely argues, despite a rapidly growing middle and upper class, popular media and public debates continue to view African-American families from a deficit perspective. Portrayals of African-American families in newspapers, television, and contemporary scholarship tend to focus on single-parent households, low parental expectations, and lack of family involvement in schooling. The families you will meet in this book contradict these stereotypes. In carefully crafted vignettes, Dr. Robinson and paints an alternative portrait of life in African-American households. In this marvelous book, you will see eight intact families intimately involved in the academic and social lives of their children. Some volunteer in their children's classrooms; others serve as devoted tutors and mentors; still others are active advocates, arguing passionately for school services; all hold fast to the hope that their children will achieve their piece of the American dream. This book is a powerful antidote to the negative portrayals of African-American families that abound in mainstream media.It is a "must-read" for researchers, educators, and all who wish to look beyond and beneath the stereotypes of African-American family life.
