Title: Malik Goes to School
Subtitle: Examining the Language Skills of African American Students From Preschool - 5th Grade
Written By: Holly K. Craig
Julie A Washington
Description:

"Malik Goes to School: Examining the Language Skills of African American
Students From Preschool-5th Grade" synthesizes a decade of research by the
authors, Holly Craig and Julie Washington, on the oral language and
literacy skills of African American children from preschool to fifth grade.
Their research has characterized significant influences on the child's use
of AAE and the relationship between AAE and aspects of literacy
acquisition. The research has also led to the characterization of other
nondialectal aspects of language development. The outcome has been a
culture-fair, child-centered language evaluation protocol.

This very readable volume will be important to students, clinicians, and
teachers, learning about and working with, African American children. The
book has direct relevance to academic planning, clinical decision-making,
curriculum development, and educational policymaking.
