A Program for Linguistically Different, Black Children.
Strickland, Dorothy S.
The exposure of linguistically different black kindergarten children to a special literature program was undertaken to test its efficacy as a preventive approach to reading failure. There were 94 subjects (45 in an experimental group and 49 in a control group) in four schools located in lower income urban areas. The program demonstrated a successful method of expanding their language repertoire to include standard English (as opposed to language substitution or subjugation of one dialect for another), allowing the experimental group to make gains exceeding those of the control group.
