The Use of Native Language Models in the Development of Critical Literacy.
Dyc, Gloria
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v18 n3 p211-33 1994
Many American Indian students are alienated from schooling by the obvious disparities and conflicts between language usage in the oral tradition of their communities and that required in written academic discourse. A community-based language model used with Lakota college students empowers students by teaching critical writing that fuses community-based language competencies and essayist literacy. (SV)
