The Importance of "Opportunity to Respond" in the Education of the Black Minority Student.
Delquadri, Joe; Greenwood, Charles R.
Based on findings on the Juniper Gardens Children's Project (a community based research program to increase the reading skills of learning disabled inner city children), the paper presents research and preliminary classroom observations which point to the importance of providing an environment which allows Black minority inner city students to make academic responses. The premise is set forth that the learning disabled minority child may be one who begins school with less educational experience from the home, and falls further and further behind over the grades due to low levels of active academic response time as structured by the teacher and classroom. One aspect of the program involves using parents to listen and deliver praise to their children. (SB)
