Black English and Standard English: An Annotated Bibliography.
Mack, Molly A.
Whether black students should be required to use standard English in school is a controversial issue that has fostered contradictory opinions, studies, and data. This annotated bibliography of more than 100 items provides a wide range of material dealing with the following aspects of this topic: the historical backgrounds of black English, the effectiveness of teaching standard English to nonstandard speakers and writers, the economic and academic implications of acquiring standard English ability, and the attitudes of both blacks and whites toward standard English. To assist the reader, items that provide a general sense of the issues involved are marked with an asterisk, while the unmarked items are more specific in their treatment of black English or are items of less historical significance.
