TR 15. Negotiating Among Multiple Worlds: The Space/Time Dimensions of Young Children's Composing

By Anne Haas Dyson

Summary: In this examination of the drawing, talking, and writing of kindergartners, first-, and second-graders, Dyson focuses on children's growing awareness of text time and space as they develop as authors of fictional prose. This study questions the developmental appropriateness of traditional assumptions about "embedded" and "disembedded" language and about "narrative" and "expository" prose. May, 1988; 36 pages.
