Yamauchi, Lois A.; Tharp, Roland G.
Linguistics and Education, v7 n4 p349-67 1995
Considers the formal education of a group of Native American students who have not traditionally done well in school and suggests a cultural mismatch between the home culture of these students and the culture of the Western school. Findings indicate that culture influences discourse styles, expectations for classroom behavior, and classroom social organization. (84 references) (Author/CK)
