Topic: Discuss the issues of language attitudes, correctness, and identity as they are presented in the articles by Joanne Kilgour Dowdy, Lisa Delpit, and Judith Baker.
The first sheet of my uploaded articles describes the assignment. Please check the uploaded package.
The writing style I prefer is very simple language. I like the focus to be on the fluency of reasoning, rather then sophisticated words/phrases. Write it as simplistically as possible yet, let the analysis be strong & coherent.
The assignment is 5 chapters from the book- The Skin That We Speak: Thoughts on Language and Culture in the Classroom~ by Lisa Delpit & Joanne Kilgour Dowdy.
And an article by Amy Tan: Mother Tongue.
I have uplaoded all the four(4) out of the six(6) readings. I could not find the “Ovuh Dyuh”~by Joanne Kilgour Dowdy, & “some basic sociolinguistic concepts”~ by Michael Stubbs. These two articles I couldn’t find to upload it for you are chapter 1 & Chapter 5 of the book itself, respectively. The are crucial chapters for this paper, especially the Michael Stubbs one.
This assignment is not just a summary of the articles. I will upload the assignment sheet along with the articles i have found that the assignment is about.
Again, I will emphasize on the writing style of the paper. Let it be strong, fluent and no big words or sophisticated transitional words/phrases.
