The Makings of a Good Story: Children's Perceptions Unfold through Their Artwork.
Hale, Judy A.
Through content analysis of interviews based on a class art activity, a study of 15 first-graders investigated children's perceptions of a good story. The story was based on children's interpretation of artwork they had created. Through the use of content analysis, three major themes of the children's stories were identified: (1) animals as main characters; (2) young children as main characters; and (3) problems or danger. Results of analysis indicated that story telling based on student artwork can facilitate literacy development. Contains 13 references. (JW)
