Gutierrez-Clellan, Vera F.
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v29 n4 p207-15 Oct 1998
This study compared the syntactic skills of Spanish-speaking children with low and average school achievement from kindergarten to fifth grade using oral narratives that were elicited with book and film retelling tasks. Results indicated that low achieving children exhibited limited use of complex syntax and greater formulation difficulties in their narratives than did average achieving peers. (Author/DB)
