Ebonics: When Is Dialect Acceptable English?
Brice-Finch, Jacqueline
Clearing House, v70 n5 p228-29 May-Jun 1997
Notes that familiarity with the language of students--and especially awareness of the features of their languages that make acquisition of educated English difficult--enables the teacher to use a variety of techniques. Suggests that tolerance and acceptance of a panoply of dialects is a must, not a choice. (RS)
