No Longer Deprived: The Use of Minority Cultures and Languages in the Education of Disadvantaged Children and their Teachers. Series in Guidance and Student Personnel Administration.
Fedder, Ruth; Gabaldon, Jacqueline
This book describes how a number of professional and volunteer social workers went about communicating with and teaching disadvantaged children. The records included (reports of events week by week, and day by day) are considered to show the infinitesimal steps that led to eventual success. These examples of how the Indian child, the Spanish-speaking child, and the child of the migrant worker were turned into successful, confident learners are held to be easily translatable into one's own practice, and to provide insights to improving efforts at overcoming deprivation. Aspects dealt with encompass academic enrichment; trips and other cultural activities; school health services; psychological and related consultant services; conferences and other types of work with parents, with community representatives, and organizations; remedial teaching; provision of essential materials, supplies, and equipment; individual interviews with children; and, special inservice training and adequate preservice preparation of teachers.
