Narrative Skills and Genre Knowledge: Ways of Telling in the Primary School Grades.
Hicks, Deborah
Applied Psycholinguistics, v11 n1 p83-104 Mar 1990
Primary school children, after viewing a silent film, were asked to narrate a segment of the film and recount its events both as a news story and as an embellished story. The results indicate that primary school children have only nascent ability to apply genre knowledge to school language tasks. (55 references) (Author/JL)
