"The Rose that Grew from Concrete": Postmodern Blackness and New English Education
Kirkland, David E.
English Journal, v97 n5 p69-75 May 2008
For David E. Kirkland, the New English Education locates English language arts in the realities of youth, where texts emerge from students' lives, and the notions of reading and writing in English classrooms are open to revision. Kirkland reflects on how "postmodern Black experience, especially as seen in hip-hop, gives English teachers one way of envisioning the New English Education." (Contains 1 figure.)
