Sociolinguistics and the African-American Community: Implications for Literacy.
Foster, Michele
Theory into Practice, v31 n4 p303-11 Fall 1992
Shared cultural backgrounds and norms about how to use language can influence classroom interactions for minorities, including African Americans. Research finds serious problems when teachers' interactional styles differ from that of students' home communities. The differences can prevent full student participation and limit academic progress. Intervention strategies are discussed. (SM)
