Dealing with Differences. Classroom Practices in Teaching English, 1980-1981.
National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
The twenty-four articles in this collection focus on the problems presented by the increasing numbers of exceptional students with whom the English classroom teacher must deal: physically, emotionally, and mentally handicapped; nonnative speakers of English; nontraditional students; speakers of nonstandard dialects; the gifted and talented; and alienated, disenchanted, and unmotivated learners. The articles are divided into four sections: (1) responses to mainstreaming, (2) students facing obstacles to learning, (3) minority students and nonnative speakers of English, and (4) students who need special challenges (the gifted/talented).
