Good Reading for the Disadvantaged Reader: Multi-Ethnic Resources.
Spache, George D.
Ways of improving reading instruction among the disadvantaged minority groups in our population is the concern of this book. It is the stated hope of the author that this book will alert teachers to the need to help pupils find books with which they can identify--ones in which they can find positive images of their race or ethnic type. To promote a better understanding of the disadvantaged person, chapters are presented concerning the self-concept, building the self-concept, and reading instruction with the disadvantaged. Following this, books and other teaching materials are listed to help teachers promote a positive self-concept for minority students. A brief annotation is provided for each title. The lists are extensive and include materials for the Black American, the American Indian, Eskimos, inner-city life, the Mexican-American and migrant workers, Orientals, and Puerto-Ricans. Additional booklists are concerned with reading improvement, social science and science, materials for instructional units, audio-visual resources, and professional resources. Finally, adult literacy is discussed and materials are presented for helping to educate adult illiterates and school dropouts. Title and author indexes and the names and addresses of publishers are included. (DE)
