Black Children -- by Janice Hale: EXCELLENT!

Janice Hale has made a significant contribution to assisting educators and others in understanding the cognitive style of African American children. In her book, she covers the concepts of emotive style (especially as it exists historically in the Black community), relational vs. analytical learning styles and some solutions for how to better reach (and teach) African American youth.Her writing is timeless, as valid today (in 2000) as it was when I first read it (in 1993) and when it was first published (1986, I believe). This book is a "must read" for anyone interested in gaining insight into how schools (and teachers) can better serve the educational needs of African American youth, particularly in understanding the emotive style of communication most African American youth are exposed to in church and family gatherings. While not a validation for "Ebonics" -- which I do not support -- this book definitely makes the case that the relational style of learning and emotive communication style are vital parts of the African American community's legacy, tradition and uniqueness.
