Every six months or so, a study reports about our inability to educate black males. Yet, after reading Ribbin’, Jivin, and Playin’ the Dozens: The Persistent Dilemma in Our Schools, teachers learned how to teach black males. Through 99 Realities and other examples, Ribbin’, describes, discusses, and explains black male street corner language and behavior and how it is played out in the classroom. Too often, teachers misunderstand and misinterpret their black male student’s language and behavior resulting in their black male students being referred to special education or considered a discipline problem disproportionate to their numbers in the school. Ribbin’ will provide you with the educational insight to successfully educate black males—the information woefully lacking in contemporary education courses. Authentic examples are provided that demonstrates how some teachers handled challenging situations with their black male students to help you develop your own teaching style relative to your persona and student population. When you open Ribbin’, Reality 1 is a must read, it recounts my first day of substitute teaching in the N. Y. C. Public Schools and what happened to me that Friday morning. I was so discouraged, I considered suicide that weekend because I always wanted to be a teacher and, after one day, I was a failure. However, read how I rebounded on Monday, and turned things around. To enhance your ability to teach black males, Chapter 8 about dress and grooming for teachers is a must. In brief, respect and feelings about yourself and your students is demonstrated by dressing professionally, at minimum, neat and clean. Your students expect you to dress well. Your students will keep a record of what you wear on what day and whether that stain has been cleaned away! Indeed, your students will compare notes on what car you drive, the watch you wear and your dress style. Chapter 5 Jive Lexicon and Verbal Communication is about words students may use to dupe or test you. Students must learn Standard English; the sine qua non to for economic success. Your students need a Standard English teaching model to emulate. However, teachers should learn the language their students use. It is viewed as “barrier busting” when students observe you trying to be hip and use their language—of course, this means “acceptable vocabulary.” Moreover, it may be appropriate for your students to use the vernacular depending upon the subject you teach. Chapter 6 about classroom contests provides information about the “games” some students use to con, provoke, or test your “street” knowledge. “Playing the Dozens” from an historical perspective to how it playes out negatively in classrooms is described and explained. If you are unfamiliar with “Playing the Dozens”—also known by other names; best you learn. Hence, examples of teachers positively handling the dozens are presented. Reading Chapter 7 will help you through my Four Step Plan for Classroom Management and School Discipline. You need to get order for you to teach successfully. Your primary responsibility as a teacher is to figure out how to achieve an orderly and safe classroom so that your students can relax and allow you to teach them. If you wish to become a successful teacher, buy Ribbin’. If you want to be told how to become a teacher, do not buy Ribbin’. If you see yourself as a professional teacher, and willing to change your teaching behavior first, in order to get your students to change their behavior, purchase Ribbin’. In sum, a well-designed lesson plan will not ensure classroom success. Teachers must make educational and behavioral demands on students, black males in particular. Ribbin’ demystifies this “persistent dilemma.” Without a question, black males can and must be taught Standard English, mathematics, and the so-called middle class skills needed to make it economically in the U. S.

Herbert L. Foster is a Professor Emeritus, Graduate School of Education, State University of New York at Buffalo. Prior to his 28-½ years at SUNY/Buffalo, he was for 17 years a teacher and administrator in the NYC Public Schools. Sixteen years were in the “600” schools and Junior Guidance Classes Program for emotionally disturbed and socially maladjusted children. Born in the Bronx, he grew up in Brooklyn, NY.

He has been published in innumerable journals. A 1995 issue of the Journal of African American Men carried his research article, “Educators’ and Non-Educators’ Perceptions of Black Males: A Survey.” In this study, he had 3,130 respondents who were asked about people’s stereotypical beliefs, feelings, expectations, and fantasies about black males. He tied the study into the disproportionate referral and assignment of black schoolchildren—males in particular--to special education programs for the mildly handicapped and the emotionally disturbed. He has consulted & run workshops for districts under court desegregation orders. A much in demand speaker and workshop leader for topics such as educating black children, teacher racism, classroom management and school discipline, and experiential education.
