IRCD Bulletin (Supplement), Volume 2, Number 3A, Summer 1966.
Gordon, Edmund W., Ed.
A bulletin consists of two articles on the language development of disadvantaged children. The opposing positions of language teachers on the "correct" approach to teaching standard English are outlined in one of the articles. On one side are those who favor creativity and freedom of expression while on the other side are the "purists" who are committed to the viewpoint of correctness of language. Suggested is a dual curricular approach in which the two kinds of instruction are presented separately. The second article discusses a survey of the language situation in Head Start classes. The survey points up the need for "greater sophistication and flexibility in the conception and identification of verbal deficiencies," an orientation which would enable diagnosis of an individual child's language deficits.
