Freeman, Evelyn B.; Sanders, Tobie R.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v4 n3 p331-38 Sep 1989
Explored young children's concepts of the functions of writing in community contexts. Twenty kindergarten children responded to three videotaped vignettes depicting people writing in community settings. The children were able to identify a range of writing functions. They also valued writing and described the negative consequences likely to occur if people did not write. (RJC)
