Language Barriers of the Culturally Different.
Berg, Paul Conrad
Language differences peculiar to the disadvantaged are discussed as they relate to reading. Linguistic differences, including the interdependence among language, operant feedback, thought, and experience, and the power of these to reconstruct and reassociate through reading constitute one barrier. Another is the effects of language on the total adjustment of the individual and the problems involved in trying to place him in a classroom. The language experience approach is described as perhaps the best way to bring together the student's experiences, language, thought, feedback, and reading. Role playing and other activities growing out of the language experience approach bring together the world of the student and the world of the classroom. References are included. (MD)
