The Enemy's Language: A Beginning Teacher's Experience. Reflections.
Journal of Experiential Education, v19 n3 p160-62 Dec 1996
A teacher realized she had been using language in a way that alienated the minority students in her eighth-grade English class. Discusses the language of power, indirect commands, the need to know a variety of speech types, the importance of validating students' language and culture, and the teacher's responsibility to explicitly give students access to the culture of power.
