Welcome back from Spring Break! Next week is our last reading assignment. After that, we move into final projects (the syllabus will remain unchanged as per our vote).
II. Conversations w/ Ta-Nehisi Coates
Our Question: What does this mean for classrooms? for curriculum? for literacies?

III. Open Discussions
IV. Last Hype Presentation (5:55pm): Sara
"Black Boy Interrupted: American Plunder and the Incomplete Life of Jordan Davis"
A Quick Sampling of Videos about Between the World and Me
- Sign-up for your chapter in the final reading: True to the Language Game by Keith Gilyard
