Win a free book by Tyson – read more here!

In October of 2017 many BATs attended The Network for Public Education’s Annual Conference in Oakland. At this conference was a gifted poet by the name of Tyson Amir. We had the honor of meeting him and chatting with him about his work! He was discussing his book called Black Boy Poems. It is a powerful book that should become part of every teacher’s classroom. The book is formatted in such a way that it begins with a poem and is followed by an interpretation of the poem and the central theme. We are highlighting the powerful work of Tyson this week. In fact, we will send a free copy of his book to the first five teachers who email us at contact.batmanager@gmail.com. We hope you will find a way to bring his work into your classroom.
