Psychological Causation and Goal-Based Episodes: Low-Income Children's Emerging Narrative Skills.
Benson, Margaret S.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v12 n4 p439-57 1997
Examined association between understanding of psychological causation and ability of young children from low-income families to produce goal-based episodes in narratives. Participants "read" book and resulting narrative was coded for psychological causation and goal-based episodes. Use of psychological causation was related to age and was a stronger predictor of producing goal-based episodes than age or language ability. (EV)
