Teaching Standard English: Whose Standard?
Christensen, Linda M.
English Journal, v79 n2 p36-40 Feb 1990
Critiques the practice of conforming to Standard English when teaching writing. Argues that when more attention is paid to form than to content, students' words and thoughts become devalued. Emphasizes the need to teach students to hold their own voices sacred, and discusses instructional strategies which encourage this attitude. (MM)
