My Top 10 Books About Race in America

I have read these books both on my own and in my classroom. Many of my juniors say that reading about slavery from textbooks versus from someone who was a slave is incompatible. The Narrative Life of Frederick Douglass is a favorite in my classroom because of its ability to tell you history without distorting reality. Each of these books will give you great insight and accurate accounts about America’s true history and current events. You will see things through a new lens and hopefully be enlightened enough to assist in changing policies that no longer serve us or enacting ones that do.

I'm an experienced high school English teacher sharing best practices to inform, to inspire and to reflect on my own craft. Love implementing new ideas and efficient systems that make teaching manageable. Teachers need a surmountable amount of support to help them survive, and every year comes with its own challenges. When I am not teaching or creating, I love hiking, running, anything outdoorsy! I am also a mother of two boys, one in college the other in his last year of middle school. Hope you can utilize what I create and share on this platform.
