African-American Children and the Educational Process: Alleviating Cultural Discontinuity through Prescriptive Pedagogy.
Allen, Brenda A.; Boykin, A. Wade
School Psychology Review, v21 n4 p586-96 1992
Seeks to establish that contextual factors informed by certain postulated cultural experiences can influence cognitive performance of African-American children. Designs models to explain fundamental link between culture and cognition. Argues that much school failure exhibited by African-American children can be explained in terms of cultural discontinuity resulting from mismatch between salient features in home and in schools.
