Realities and Fallacies of Reading Instruction for Ethnically Different Students: Cognitive and Affective Concerns.
Vick, Marian Lee
A review of the literature about reading instruction for ethnically different students discloses a body of information largely disconnected and biased. Numerous factors are alleged to be determinants of the reading retardation of such students. Generally, these fall into two categories: racial factors in intelligence and cultural deprivation. The author concludes that minority ethnic groups, and especially blacks, have been and still are enmeshed in racial-, class-, caste-, and self-image problems. However, if members of minority ethnic groups are respected, accepted, and taught as human beings, their average performance might eventually reach the norm performance of other human beings who are so taught.
