TR 36. "Once-Upon-a-Time" Reconsidered: The Developmental Dialectic Between Function and Form

By Anne Haas Dyson

Summary: Based on a three-year study of writing development in an urban magnet school, this essay traces the evolution of "once-upon-a-time" in a case-study child's classroom story writing. Dyson demonstrates how the story forms young children learn from others are not the end products, but the catalysts, of development. July, 1989; 30 pages.
