Caribbean English and the Literacy Tutor - A Manual (1995)

This manual is designed for tutors working with adult learners of Caribbean Creole heritage. It gives tutors historical and socio-cultural information on the Caribbean. Many people make value judgements about a person on the basis of how they speak English. This manual provides tutors with a framework for looking at language in non-judgemental ways, and for viewing language as a reflection of culture and history.
