An Argument for the Appreciation of Dialect Differences in the Classroom
Dean, Mary B.; Fowler, Elaine D.
Journal of Negro Education, 43, 3, 302-309, Sum 74
The educational practices and theories of linguists and educators concerning speakers of Black dialect are discussed in terms of three varying perspectives: (1) eradication; (2) bidialectalism; and, (3) appreciation of dialect differences. An arguement for the latter view is made and a list of suggestions relative to language instruction is suggested. (EH)
