Call in to speak with the host
Our Guest Griot this week is reknown African Historian, speaker, trainer, author and gifted educator Chike Akua (pronounced "Cheek-uh A-koo-uh") Chike is a leading authority on increasing the achievement of today’s students, especially those labeled “at-risk.” Ebony magazine selected him as one of it “50 Leaders of Tomorrow,” a distinction he is certainly living up to today. He is the author of several books that are being used in schools around the country including 'Reading Revolution, A Treasure Within', and 'Words of Power'. His teacher transformation workshops give teachers concrete and effective strategies for maximizing students achievement, especially for students labeled "at-risk." His African Origins presentations leave audiences spellbound as he gives visual evidence of the contributions African people have made to humanity. Mr. Akua is a recognized master teacher and is one of the most sought after speakers at educational conferences, k-12 schools, colleges, and universities.
It's good to talk.
