I Ain't Never Read My Own Words Before.
Purcell-Gates, Victoria
Journal of Reading, v37 n3 p210-19 Nov 1993
Describes and analyzes how an Urban Appalachian woman who could not read or write progressed to functional levels when instruction involved her in reading her own language. Argues that educators who failed to acknowledge her language as an integral aspect of her as a learner may have denied her previous access to literacy. (SR)
