TR 60.Collaboration Between Children Learning to Write: Can Novices be Masters?

By Colette Daiute, Bridget Dalton

Summary: Daiute and Dalton explore the role of peer collaboration in literacy development as a case study in the broader inquiry on the social nature of learning and cognitive development. They analyze individual and collaborative stories produced by low-achieving urban third-graders on a computer, as well as transcripts of the talk between collaborative pairs, to illustrate that children can learn and use complex story elements by working with their peers. April, 1992; 54 pages.
