Over the course of his academic career, as a devoted Scholar, Walton has passionately researched the positive effects of Spelling instruction which is proven to significantly enhance a child’s ability to read. Fittingly, Melanin Spelling Bee King’s is a book effectively designed to significantly enhance a student’s word decoding ability, which is the foundational skill to reading, and improving their sight recognition. In addition, the book’s material assists students with developing the necessary skills needed to master the alphabetic code. Suitably, this book is precisely designed to efficiently increase both the spelling and reading ability of young boys born into the African diaspora.
A book precisely designed to enlighten and inspire underrepresented youth of color born into the African diaspora. Walton aims to do this by taking a sociological approach and positively shaping the young minds of these particular youth by empowering them to develop an early growth mindset. Unfortunately, several melanin born boys are raised in disadvantaged environments which lack adequate educational opportunities or community resources.
