"Mind the Word Gap" "The famous word gap doesnt hurt only the young It affects many educators too" and "The Early Catastrophe: The 30 Million Word Gap by Age 3" are now quite common From a place of relative obscurity the study has now become the "evidence-based" foundation for countless initiatives and programs working to improve the academic achievement of poor children I agree that the idea is tempting to embrace especially when it has received support from high-profile organizations like the Clinton Foundations Too Small to Fail The University of Chicago School of Medicines Thirty Million Words Initiative and even The White House But the attention being paid to "word gap" is harmful Why is the word gap harmful Students living in poverty currently comprise more than one-half of the public school population Meanwhile the test-score gap between the most disadvantaged children (those in the bottom 10% of the income distribution) and children from wealthy families (those in the top 10%) has expanded by 30% to 40% over the last three decades Unfortunately the focus on the "word gap" takes teachers and other educators away from thinking about how to address the larger issue of inequality in education Instead it focuses attention on what children do not have in terms of an arbitrary word count Following the "word gap" logic teachers often view vocabulary building as the most important aspect of education However in reality there is a wide scope of early learning experiences that all young children particularly those experiencing poverty need to develop For example approaches such as project-based learning provide students the opportunity to engage with complex topics and construct their own knowledge in addition to developing vocabulary Moreover when we use the "word gap" to identify poor children as behind before they even begin school that affects their teachers’ view of what they are capable of doing It directs attention toward the things that poor families do not have and cannot offer their young children Research shows that teachers of poor students and/or students of color often dwell on the experiences and language that their students are missing and default to teaching practices such as vocabulary drills and rote repetition that emphasize obedience and quiet behavior Not only do these types of learning experiences limit students opportunities to develop language they also negatively affect students views of themselves as learners Poor students are made to feel less capable because of what they do not know Because of the "word gap" and other widespread assumptions grounded in deficit thinking the idea that low-income minority students fail in school because they and their families have deficiencies many teachers are not tapping into the strengths and rich experiences that their students bring to school Consequently they deny students the types learning experiences that allow them to explore talk and collaborate Finally the "word gap" sends a message to poor parents and parents of color that there is something wrong with their parenting if it is different from the practices of affluent white parents It unfairly takes the onus off of schools and teachers to provide sophisticated learning opportunities in which their students can excel and places the blame for failure squarely on parents shoulders As a result poor parents and parents of color are viewed as less capable because of what they do not know just like their children The learning experience gap Low-income children are more likely than their higher-income peers to be in factory-like classrooms that allow little interaction and physical movement As a result these children spend more time sitting following directions and listening rather than discussing debating solving problems and sharing ideas Focusing on the "word gap" further perpetuates these problematic learning opportunities and deprives children of the types of learning experiences required to develop a range of sophisticated capabilities I believe that most parents regardless of circumstance would also agree that it is important to engage in conversation with their young children However early conversations and exposure to words will not determine whether a child does well in school Furthermore poverty is not an indication that parents are not speaking to their young children The academic disparity between young children in poverty and children from wealthier families is not a result of what their parents can offer It is a result of the different types of learning experiences they are afforded at school In other words it is not the "word gap" but the opportunity gap that is the problem This article originally appeared on The Conversation Contact us at [email protected] Praying for all.
