African-American Literacies is a personal, public and political exploration of the problems faced by student writers from the African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) culture. Drawing on personal experience, Elaine Richardson provides a compelling account of the language and literacy practices of African-American students. The book analyses the problems encountered by the teachers of AAVE speakers, and offers African American centred theories and pedagogical methods of addressing these problems. Richardson builds on recent research to argue that teachers need not only to recognise the value and importance of African-American culture, but also to use African-American English when teaching AAVE speakers standard English. African-American Literacies offers a holistic and culturally relevant approach to literacy education, and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the literacy practices of African-American students.Coreelation of post-word, post-discourse, and post-rate Leta#39;s look at the data from pre- to post-curriculum to discern the amount of change in studentsa#39; essay ... association between discourse scores, essay length and essay score, I wondered what would be the pre- and post-result of each dependent sample: ... 200 100anbsp;...
