Language, Literacy, and the Image of the Child in American Indian Classrooms.
McCarty, Teresa L.
Language Arts, v70 n3 p182-92 Mar 1993
Describes how educators at one Navajo community school are transforming assumptions about schooling for indigenous groups from a deficit model to one that views bilingualism, biculturalism, and multiculturalism as assets to be tapped. Bases the discussion on a long-term ethnographic study of the changes brought about through the implementation of bilingual whole-language pedagogy. (RS)
