CORE October 22, 2019
Watch On-Demand

While the impacts of poverty on academic achievement are widely known, dialect also plays a significant and unrecognized role in the reading achievement of millions of children. Just like students whose native language is Spanish or Amharic, students who speak the dialect known as African-American English (AAE) face obstacles to becoming proficient readers.

Watch this on-demand webinar with Dr. Julie A. Washington to learn:

  • Characteristics of AAE
  • Impact of poverty on language
  • Relationship of dialect to growth of reading
  • Variables that influence reading outcomes for poor children
  • Implications for the classroom

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the impact AAE dialect has on black-white differences in reading achievement.
