Social Class and Regional Dialects: Their Relationship to Reading. An Annotated Bibliography.
Zuck, Louis V.; Goodman, Yetta M.
Designed for teachers, curriculum planners, and educational researchers, this annotated bibliography includes 63 entries which deal with issues surrounding social and regional dialects and reading. The titles include journal articles and books which have been published from 1963 to 1971. It is divided into four sections: (1) "Linguistic Concepts Related to Oral Language," (2) "Linguistic Concepts Related to Written Language," (3) "Implications for the Classroom," and (4) "Social Class Dialects and Sound Language Learning: Are They Related?" The included articles were selected on the basis that they all accept implicitly or explicitly that (1) all American children and teachers whose first language is English speak a dialect of American English, (2) all dialects of American English have structure and rules--they are all legitimate forms of American English, (3) all children have a variety of experiences and belong to social groups, and (4) all social groups have a culture.
