Standard Oral English, Tenth Grade: Instructional Guide C.
Cockrell, Wilma; Johnson, Kenneth R.
This teaching guide , developed with ESEA Title I funds, outlines an oral English program to help Negro students eliminate nonstandard pronunciation and usage in their speech. The first part consists of three lessons to motivate the students, which develop particular concepts about language. The second and third parts contain pronunciation and usage lessons which deal with one item of linguistic interference and give the student an opportunity to use standard English in a particular situation. Each lesson has three or four followup activities, which are designed as 10- or 15-minute activities to be presented following the basic lessons. The guide also contains an outline of the characteristics of Negro dialects, general teaching suggestions, and a brief bibliography. (See also UD 007696 for parallel program to help Mexican-American students). (EF)
