Synopsis

Losing Our Language How Multiculturalism Undermines Our Children's Ability to Read, Write and Reason by Sandra Stotsky

In Losing Our Language , Stotsky shows how basal readers have been systematically dumbed down. While elementary readers of the past featured excerpts from classic stories such as Arabian Nights and Robinson Crusoe , with a complex vocabulary and sentence structure able to challenge the imagination and build reading skills, today's basal readers present students with politically and ethnically correct stories whose language is virtually foreign and unable to engage students. Drawing words from Swahili, Spanglish and other trendy dialects to teach students with a shrinking English vocabularly is a symptom of this intellectual and cultural disorder.
