A Selected Bibliography for Non Middle-Class Children, Grades 1-3.
Browning, Carole L.
The purpose of this bibliography is to identify reading materials which meet the needs of the culturally disadvantaged student, especially during the beginnning stages of reading. The criteria used in the selection of books included: ideas and symbols with which the culturally disadvantaged child could identify, concepts which include a basic repertory into which the culturally disadvantaged child can comfortably place himself while expanding his perceptual field, characters which are similar to the disadvantaged child, and social skills and attitudes which will help the culturally disadvantaged child in attaining and maintaining harmonious peer and family relationships. The bibliography itself is divided into the following sections: beginning readability level, readability level two, and readability level three. These readability levels indicate the independent reading level of the book. The symbol "RA" following the annotation indicates titles which are recommended for reading aloud; an asterisk indicates titles which are especially suitable for individual corrective work in reading.
