Alfred Tatum's paper on student-centered learning released by Jobs for the Future
National literacy expert Alfred Tatum was one of nine teams asked to participate in a Jobs for the Future Project on student-centered learning. JFF launched the Students at the Center project in 2010, commissioning nine papers from noted research teams to build the knowledge base for student-centered learning. JFF recently released Tatum’s executive summary, Literacy Practices for African-American Male Adolescents that places student-centered learning in the context of race and gender and proposes an improved approach to literacy instruction for African-American males.
