Black English in a Place Called Waterloo.
Sulentic, Margaret-Mary
Multicultural Education, v8 n4 p24-30 Sum 2001
For many black students, the school language differs significantly from the home language, but preservice education rarely examines this issue. This article examines implications for teaching children who use two different forms of language to navigate the demands of their contrasting sociolinguistic speech communities, discussing: how teacher attitudes and knowledge affect practice; dual language demands; ebonics; and language as power.
