Black Boys in Literature
In this 6-week course, we will read the novel ‘As Brave as You’ by Jason Reynolds. The focus will be to discuss the writing techniques used for character building and identifying societal themes that go into the process of writing a story. Throughout the course, students will learn how to craft character descriptions and the steps to growing a story while reflecting on the connections they take from the book. At the end of the course, students should have up to a 2-page story using the tools learned throughout.
