A New Look at Children's Language.
Quisenberry, Nancy Lou Forbes
Methods that can be used by the teacher to encourage children to use standard language are discussed. Three specific instructions to the teacher are given: (1) Recognize that this is part of the natural language growth process and accept it for that; (2) Realize that it cannot be changed overnight. The child will have to be exposed to the accepted form naturally in many ways and for many times; (3) If the child lives in a family whose dialect includes these forms, it will take longer to bring about changes and will probably be more difficult. Many experiences should be provided with records listening tapes, and other adults. Story telling and reading also provide opportunities for hearing many of the irregular forms. (DB)
