Danielewicz, Jane M.; Rogers, Dwight L.; Noblit, George
International Journal of Qualitative Studies, v9 n3 p311-31 Jul-Sep 1996
Investigates children's language and interaction during sharing time in a first-grade classroom. Observes that when sharing time shifted from a teacher-led to a child-led event, corresponding changes appeared in children's language. Suggests that teachers create speech situations that children control to encourage language development and collaboration skills. (DSK)
