Tacit Shared Understandings of a First-Grade Writing Community.
MacGillivray, Laurie
Journal of Reading Behavior, v26 n3 p245-66 Sep 1994
Examines first graders' tacit shared understandings about composing as related to expectations about the processes and meaning of writing. Finds evidence of three cultural themes: (1) the processes of creating and sharing text-mediated relationships with others; (2) writing was used to explore "self" and the world; and (3) collaborative composing was at times used as an act of unity.
