Black English: Its Relationship to Reading. An Annotated Bibliography.
Harber, Jean R., Comp.
Much research and writing has been carried out in recent years in an attempt to account for and eliminate, or at least minimize, the poor performance of many Black, lower-socioeconomic status, urban children in our schools. This annotated bibliography lists articles, books, and papers that explore the theoretical frameworks employed to describe the disadvantage or defect these children are suffering, the features of Black English, the effect of dialect interference on children's performance of language and reading tasks, the educational alternatives suggested for teaching reading to Black English-speaking children, and the value of currently available tests for use with Black English-speaking children. No single position is represented in the bibliography, and a deliberate effort was made to include works representative of a wide range of opinions and findings. Because of the point to which knowledge in the field has advanced, many entries may appear to be contradictory to other entires. There are still a great number of unresolved issues in the field of Black English and its relationship to reading. (Author/CLK)
