Assisting Creole-English and non-standard dialect speaking students in learning standard English
In this paper I will more fully explain the history of Creole languages, describing in detail the most common Caribbean English Creole Language, Jamaican Creole, in addition to describing the various Creole Languages spoken in the United States. I will also explain the educational system in both Jamaica and the United States as pertaining to Creole English speakers. Next, I will illustrate the differences between Standard English and Creole Englishes while highlighting the similarities between African American Vernacular English and Creole English. I will clarify AAVE's relevance to this study of "Assisting Creole-English and Non-Standard Dialect Speaking Students in Learning Standard English." Then I will discuss more specifically the number of students who speak non-standard dialects of English or English Creoles, and the inadequate education these students receive. Finally, I will address encouraging changes in education and helpful teaching trends which should be shared and applied in other instructional settings.
