Angela Davis

Born: March 23, 1949 in Chicago, Illinois
Pen Name: Angela Lewis, Angela E. Davis

Connection to Illinois: Davis was born in Chicago and graduated from both Chicago State University and Lewis University. She currently resides in Homewood, Illinois.

Biography: Davis is a retired elementary teacher with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction/Early Childhood Education. Her expertise is in the field of reading and language arts for the young child. As an educator, she often created her own learning material to facilitate the diverse needs of the urban child in her care. After many years of testing her materials, she developed a unique, innovative early intervention-approach to teaching reading to children gowing up in urban environments. This approach, called ''The Language/Vocabulary Acquisition Approach'', has completely changed the dynamic of how we approach the African American child in the area of reading.
