Join me on a page-turning adventure through Kwame Mbalia's first novel in the Tristan Strong series! This class is an exploration of the rich stories of West Africa and African American legends, literary devices, writing, and the arts.

Class experience

I started my teaching career in the School District of Philadelphia and taught Middle School ELA to students who were mostly Black and Latino. I think representation in literature is extremely important and, therefore, used lots of African fables and African American folktales as mentor texts in my classroom. These stories are rich with complex characters, adventure, and endearing anthropomorphic animals that appeal to every learner and should become normalized in our educational system.
-Learners will need to purchase or borrow from the library a copy of Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia. The book can be found at this amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Tristan-Strong-Punches-Hole-Novel/dp/1368042414/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=tristan+strong+punches+a+hole+in+the+sky&qid=1612399158&sr=8-1
-There will be one art project for which parents will need to purchase some easy to find materials (these will be listed in the classroom)
-All other materials will be provided by download in the classroom
