To start our study of Black writers in America, we are going to start current and work back into the past. Today, we read the opening chapter of Stamped by Jason Reynolds & Ibram X Kendi. You can find a pdf of this chapter on the Google classroom post today. Then create a notebook page (this time on a piece of paper?) to make some notes on what seems important here. Again, use tips from HOW TO NOTEBOOK to guide your thinking/writing.
