The Wynn-ing Formula

"Schoolhouses do not teach themselves piles of brick and mortar and machinery do not send out men. It is strengthened by long study and thought, that breathes the real breath of life into boys and girls andmakes them human."
— W.E.B.

Mychal Wynn's The Empowering African-African Males workbook contains over 50 activities and discussion questions that reinforce the concepts, ideas, and strategies outlined within each of the Chapters in the book: Mission, Vision, Climate & Culture, Curriculum & Content, Instruction, and Assessment.

Activities include: Developing your mission, vision, and core values; constructing a "Web of Protection"; understanding student demographics; creating cooperative groups; Team Charter; creating a classroom code of conduct; understanding "The Dozens"; and helping students to set goals and develop college-bound dreams.
