Tell Me a Make-Believe Story: Coherence and Cohension in Young Children's Picture-Elicited Narratives.
Shapiro, Lauren R.; Hudson, Judith A.
Developmental Psychology, v27 n6 p960-74 Nov 1991
After viewing sequences of pictures that depicted a problem, children produced stories with plots and character responses. After sequences of uneventful pictures, children produced stories that focused on actions and used simple connectives. First graders' stories contained more goals, complex language, and temporal connectives than did those of preschoolers. (BC)
