It’s time to go back to school! In preparation, author and educator Christopher Emdin has been offering some advice to help teachers and students succeed together. The author of For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood...and the Rest of Y’all Too recently had his op-ed “Why Black Men Quit Teaching” featured in the print and online editions of the New York Times. Online at Education Week Emdin took part in a Q&A where he offered advice to teachers about the best way to reach students of color. In the September issue of Educational Leadership his article “Seven Cs for Effective Teaching” explored effective ways to build strong relationships with students that can pave the way for academic success. And finally, over at NPR, the author spoke with Michel Martin, host of All Things Considered, to discuss goals for the new school year.
