Hartsell, Margaret P.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v12 n4 p194-203 Win 1988
The following are the basic theories concerning the teaching of English to African-American students: (1) the laissez-faire approach (noninterference with the language of the student); (2) the bidialectical approach (teaching English as if it were a foreign language); and (3) the eradicationalist approach (teaching standard English, emphasizing structural, traditional, transformational, or eclectic grammar).
