Reviews

“The content of this book provides information beneficial to parents helping them to understand their roles and responsibilities as major contributors to their children’s healthy development, socially, intellectually and emotionally which are very important to a student’s academic success. Many of the chapters are subject specific, such as reading, mathematics, science, computer application, music, geography, history, African-American literature, and several other related topics. This information will serve as a resource guide to teachers who are concerned about effective strategies to best stimulate the thinking and motivate the interest of students in urban schools. Thus, it is anticipated that this document will improve the quality of teaching and learning of urban students nationally. Southern University at New Orleans is honored to offer this book as a contribution to ensure that all students will have an opportunity to develop to their fullest potential under the guidance of educators who are determined to help them attain their life goals.” – (From the Commendatory Preface) Dr. Press L. Robinson, Chancellor, Southern University at New Orleans
