Breaking the Communication Barrier.
Price, Uberto; Raetsch, Fred
The communications barrier confronting the ghetto child, the child from Appalachia, or the reservation Indian is the standard middle-class English taught in most schools. Ways of dissolving this barrier are suggested. Speaking habits as well as thinking patterns of teachers must frequently alter. A child should be encouraged to verbalize and to share his feelings and experiences with others and to be made aware that reading is the sharing of the knowledge or experience of the author with the reader. It is the educator's duty, responsibility, and privilege to provide every student with the opportunity to advance as far as his capabilities allow by teaching him the skills needed to break the communication barrier. References are included. (NH)
