Gibbs, Vanita M., Comp.; Pabst, Robert L., Comp.
Reflecting the expertise of the speakers and providing a rich resource of information within the conference theme, the articles in these proceedings explore the relationship between cultural awareness and reading. The proceedings begin with a copy of the conference program and opening remarks by the conference cochair. Following an opening address on literature for and about all readers, the papers discuss these topics: (1) folklore, cultural awareness, and literacy, by Ronald L. Baker; (2) free and inexpensive multicultural materials, by Lawrence Reck; (3) cultural pluralism, by Mary Ann Simbol; (4) folk literature as motivation in learning to read, by Marvis Canon; (5) the "culturally responsive" preschool, by Ruth Robinson; and (6) reading and learning disabilities in East Asia, by Otto J. Shipla. (HTH)
