Summary

The assessment of teacher attitudes toward nonstandard dialects in the classroom is the major focus of this research. A Black English attitudes test was developed consisting of the "Black English Speech Varieties Attitude Test" and the "Black English Teacher Attitude Scale." The speech varieties test measures attitudes toward standard and vernacular Black speech varieties with reference to: (1) degree of education of the speaker, (2) appropriateness, (3) educational achievement potential of the speaker, (4) preference, and (5) perceived standardness. The teachers listened to tape-recorded children's voices reading randomly ordered passages in Standard Black English and Vernacular English, and recorded their responses on a response sheet in the test booklet. The teacher attitude scale was developed to measure teacher attitudes toward the legitimacy and use of Black English. The teachers evaluated statements using a four-point scale ranging from "agree strongly" to "disagree strongly." The two tests are appended, including the tape script of the passages spoken in Standard Black English and Vernacular Black English. (NCR)
