Last week you read Tatum’s Chapters 4 and 5 (pages 52-90).  Provide a A paragraph- response to each of  the 3 prompt questions below: 

Prompt# 1. According to Tatum, under what social circumstances may black adolescents

(a) Persistently sit together at a school cafeteria table (Answer is on Page 52, and page 60),  

(b) Choose not to sit at such a table? 

 Prompt# 2. Choose either (a) or (b), whichever applies to you: 

(a.  For Students who perceive themselves/are perceived as White: 

At your former school in the U.S., did you see any black adolescents (or any other adolescents of color) repeatedly sitting together at cafeteria tables or elsewhere at school perhaps for the same reasons cited by Tatum? If yes, how did you and your fellow white students react to this phenomenonIf no, how do you think you would have reacted back then, had your former school had students of color always clinging/sitting together e.g. at the cafeteria table

 b) For those who perceive themselves/are perceived as Students of Color: Explain why you think you found yourself sitting together with other students of color at a school cafeteria table (if you so did); OR Explain why you didn't sit together with other students of color at a school cafeteria table

 Prompt# 3. According to Tatum’s text (pages 59-64), why may black adolescents develop a negative identity at school that opposes schooling as something important for their upward social mobility (ability to rise up from an undesirable socio-economic position to a better one)?
