Description

Probing deep into issues that affect American schools today, Mahiri demonstrates how two connected cultures cannot be ignored if one is to effect change in education. Mahiri reveals the dynamics of effective learning -- on the basketball court and in the classroom. He encompasses computer technology, multiculturalism, tracking, race relations, the canon, as well as specific aspects of African American culture, such as signifying and receiver-centered discourse.
