Multicultural children's literature : through the eyes of many children by Donna E Norton( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To help children learn how to live in a diverse society and strive for common goals toward peace, teachers can share multicultural literature, beginning first by sharing the nature of oral language in storytelling and learning to appreciate the role of oral tradition in transmitting the culture, philosophy, and language of different peoples. Norton's second edition of Multicultural Literature: Through the Eyes of Many Children explains to teachers how to do that and further provides meaningful discussions and authentic literature examples. In separate chapters on African American, Native American, Latino, Asian, Jewish, and Middle Eastern literature, the text demonstrates how each culture has been influenced by history and created values, beliefs, and philosophies shared through its literature - offering readers ideas for providing children with positive multicultural experiences and increasing cross-cultural understandings. The text also shares with teachers guidance for beginning an exploration of multicultural literature and a framework for authenticating cultural examples."--BOOK JACKET

A Comparison of the Oral Reading Errors of High and Low Ability First and Third Graders Taught by Two Approaches--Synthetic Phonic and Analytic-Eclectic by Donna E Norton( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forty first-grade and third-grade students participated in an investigation of differences between oral reading strategies of students taught with a phonics emphasis and those of students taught with an analytic-eclectic program. Results from analysis of a reading miscue inventory used with each student indicated that miscue patterns are directly related to reading approaches. The analytic-eclectic approach developed syntactic reading strategies and self-correction strategies and produced readers who relied heavily on the semantic acceptability of the passage. A synthetic-phonic approach developed graphic, phonic, and syntactic reading strategies, with small numbers of self-corrections. Specific types of errors were described for both age groups, and differences between errors of high and low ability readers were investigated. (Author/AA)

Speech play : analysis of fictional literature by black authors by Sanrolane Larsen Richards( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research is an exploratory search for information about speech play in the form of positive and negative nickname calling and labeling, shucking, fussing, ribbing, rapping, and the dozens, within the context of black authors' fictional literature. The sample of seventy fictional selections, randomly selected from a population of three hundred selections, was analyzed through the techniques of content analysis. A total of 22,504 nicknames or labels, four incidents of shucking, 123 incidents of fussing, three incidents of ribbing, 159 incidents of rapping, and sixteen incidents of the dozens were identified in the research sample. The social and psychological reasons for these types of speech play include the Afro-Americans' deep appreciation of their oral tradition, which has persisted through the years because of its practical value in coping with difficult living conditions, and Afro-Americans' experience with prolonged poverty and racial prejudice. In the analyzed literature selections, nicknames are used as a second name, as a descriptive device for characterization to show affection, or as racial slurs and insults. Shucking is a pretend physical and verbal performance directed towards an authority figure that is used by characters to talk their way out of trouble, obtain benefits, or to preserve their lives. Fussing is used by females to scold or tease males, children, or other females in various encounters. Females use fussing as they complain, or quarrel, in order to maintain personal rights or to gain dominance over males. Ribbing is used to tease another person about their personal clothing in order to produce anger or humiliation in that person. Rapping is persuasive speech that projects the speaker's personality or physical style onto the street. Rap helps characters provide information, show sexual interest, insult others, or boast about personal expertise. The dozens are a series of insults about someone's mother. Characters used the dozens as conversation starters, retaliation for teasing, complaining, or attempts to start a fight. The personality traits that many characters share are aggressive personalities, strong work ethic, sense of humor, and pride in their ability to manipulate their environment through the use of language
