Discovering American dialects by Roger W Shuy( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a comprehensive examination of dialectology as a descriptive science and of major aspects of american english dialects. The first two chapters define what dialects are and how regional and social dialects differ from one another in terms of pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. Chapter 3 notes the patterns of settlement history, population shift, and physical geography which account for dialect differences. Chapter 4 describes current american dialects and illustrates the manner in which dialectologists have been able to isolate geographically and describe dialects. Chapter 5 assesses the influence of foreign languages on american dialects, and chapter 6 shows the use of dialects in literature. Extensive field research projects for teachers to conduct with their classes are suggested and word lists, interview forms, dialect maps, and illustrations of speech sounds are provided. Chapter 7, "further work in dialectology," contains a bibliography of books and articles on dialects. This document is available from the national council of teachers of english, 508 south sixth street, champaign, illinois 61820, $1.50 (30 or more, $1.00 each), order no. 25001. (dl)

Standards for middle and high school literacy coaches by International Reading Association( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolescents today require high degrees of literacy in order to understand complex texts in a variety of media, covering a range of topics and subject areas. In recognition of this need, middle and high schools in the United States are turning increasingly to "literacy coaches" to lend their expertise and support to content area teachers who may not be confident in their knowledge of effective reading instruction. Literacy coaching -- form of highly targeted professional development -- can be a potent vehicle for improving reading skills. When well delivered, it includes features identified as part of effective professional development: Grounded in inquiry and reflection; Participant driven and collaborative, involving knowledge sharing among teachers within communities of practice; Sustained, ongoing, and intensive. This booklet outlines the ideal of what a literacy coach should know and be able to do -- in delivering both leadership and support in individual content areas. It is offered as a blueprint not only for literacy coaches themselves, but for policymakers, school and district administrators, and teacher educators, in the hope that it will help support and develop coaching in ways that will most benefit adolescent learners
