I've always said that I should make a tumblr for my students to access links/photos/ideas/articles that I discover online and that are relevant to their class. I teach grammar, literature, and 1st year writing classes.
The title of this tumblr is a quote from Samuel Beckett's play, Waiting for Godot.
This is the cover of the book that Elaine Richardson refers to as one that saved her life in the introduction to her book, African American Literacies. An excerpt of this book can be found via google books. This is interesting for both scholars/students of race/discrimination studies as well as students studying language. African American Vernacular English, sometimes known as Ebonics, is, as Richardson puts it in her introduction, “a treasure”. She talks about how it has its own rules for its own reasons and that much can be learned from this. You may even go as far to say that it is its own art when it comes to speech, grammar and rhetoric.
