Offering information for use inside and outside of the classroom, this educational resource delineates how black males learn differently from other students and what can be done to most effectively reach them. Outlining the differences as both behavioural (attention span, aggression, maturation, energy level, and pressure from peers) and educational (verbal skills, organisation, gross and fine motor skills, and reading interests) among others, this proposal provides real-world experiences alongside theories, making this an essential guide for educators, parents, counsellors, psychologists, and others involved with black male adolescents. A section on how the majority of teachers, who are non-black and female, can extend their education to overcome differences within the normal classroom setting, and help to reduce the number of black males in special education, is also provided.
