Language Development and Reading: Perspectives on the Lingiuistically Different Learner; An Annotated Bibliography.
Hutcheson, Pat Penn
The nature of nonstandard dialects and the ways they may contribute to reading failure in the children who speak them are the focal points around which the books and articles in this annotated bibliography were compiled. Part one, "The Linguistically Different Learner," contains abstracts of items which deal primarily with language factors. This section is divided into subsections which focus on language development, dialectology, and instructional approaches to teaching standard English. Part two, "Teaching Reading to Linguistically Different Learners," contains items which deal with reading instruction. Subsections include resources on the relationship of language to the reading process and on instructional approaches and materials for teaching reading to dialect speakers. An index of authors completes the volume. (KS)
