I teach English on a campus where we have a large population of African-American students and a disproportional number of them are placed in developmental classes due to writing scores. I have used several articles from the book to help faculty understand that these students are using a vernacular that has its own grammar rules. If we teach English with difference theory in mind, I believe that we will have greater success than using the deficit model of instruction. It also gives these students a sense of ownership and buy-in to learning academic English.

Bought as gift for friend who is studying linguistics. He loved it, and I didn't read it so I cannot opine.
