Reading Teacher, v68 n5 p357-361 Feb 2015
Assessing children's narratives through the lens of intertexual process makes visible children's funds of knowledge. The authors describe two interrelated alternative assessments that teachers can use to make sense of young children's narratives in classroom settings. Implications for promoting an intertextually-rich environment based on such assessments are also discussed.
