Listening to Black Male Student Voices Using Web-Based Mentoring
Grant, David G.; Dieker, Lisa A.
Remedial and Special Education, v32 n4 p322-333 Jul-Aug 2011
The voices of Black male students labeled as having an emotionally disorder (ED) are seldom heard regarding their perspectives on education. By excluding their opinions, educators are missing an important aspect that could improve educational services for Black males with ED. This study was undertaken to determine the implications of web-based mentoring for Black male students with ED on factors that affected their behaviors and academic achievement. Mentoring through technology was used to engage students with ED and to provide a platform to share their thoughts. Using a case study approach, two Black males with ED in high school participated in web-based mentoring. Results of the study reveal that the participants' behaviors and achievement were affected by negative school and home environments, but that web-based mentoring was a positive venue to support their needs.
