Language arts (Middle school); African American children--Education


The purpose of this study was to survey the programs and materials for Negro junior high school pupils. This study was limited to: programs and materials used in curricula with disadvantaged Negro junior high school pupils. Through this study the writer hoped to show that programs and materials are available for those students who are deficient in language development. Educators can enhance and augment programs in their schools by making use of them. Flexible experimentation with vicarious programs should be pursued when developing the Language Arts in junior high schools. This is the way educators could meet the challenge of developing a curriculum for junior high school students.
