Black English--A Legitimate Dialect of English.
Branch, Germaine J.
This paper expresses concern that teachers do not agree on when, where, and how to deal with the non-standard English of blacks and other minorities. Sections of the paper discuss a definition of Black English, some forms and patterns of Black English, the language development of black children, the black child and the school, implications for teachers, and suggestions for teaching standardized English to blacks. The paper concludes that teachers can teach black children standardized English without forcing those children to give up their non-standard dialect. (RL)
