Linguistics and the Training of Teachers of the Disadvantaged: A Final Report - Part I.
Adams, Raymond S.; And Others
The potential relevance of linguistics in the development of a teacher training program is investigated. The investigation is comprised of: (1) the deliberations of the Linguistics consortium; (2) a condensed version of the material abstracted in a literature search; (3) a conceptual mapping of the field, with listings of relevant facts; and (4) a summation. The consortium focuses on, "What linguistic knowledge and insight the teachers of underprivileged children should know, think, feel and understand." The abstracts appear in the following format: author, bibliographical data, a descriptive statement of the item's nature, data-supported points or points known to be data supportable, data-free assertions, authors' recommendations, and comments when applicable. Information derived from the abstracts is presented under the following categories: Sub-cultural Patterns, Dialects and Usage, Non-standard Negro English, Indians, Spanish-Americans, Intellectual Development and Performance, Bilingualism, Language and Language Arts, Reading, Linguistic Methods, Project Head Start, and Pre-school Language Projects. It is concluded that teachers should be trained in an "acceptant" approach to language in teaching. For related documents, see ED 050 301-306. (CK)
