Flossie Ebonics: Subtle Sociolinguistic Messages in "Flossie and the Fox."
Milner, Joseph O.; Stewart, Loraine Moses
New Advocate, v10 n3 p211-14 Sum 1997
Considers the recent Ebonics debate, and examines Patricia McKissack's use of dialects in her book "Flossie and the Fox." Points out its subtle yet meaningful lessons about the intersection of language and culture, and suggests a pedagogy that honors students' home language while accepting responsibility for offering them ways to switch language codes.
