Standard English and the Migrant Community.
Shafer, Gregory
English Journal, v90 n4 p37-43 Mar 2001
Describes how the author, teaching at a South Florida high school with many children of Mexican-American migrant workers, shaped his English instruction in scenarios that reflected students' lives and cultures. Shows how class discussions and assignments probed the worthiness of the language used and the reason why it was successful. Argues that the key is not inculcation but participation. (SR)
