IRA Outstanding Dissertation Award for 1998: The Construction of Literary Understanding by First and Second Graders in Response to Picture Storybook Read-Alouds.
Sipe, Lawrence R.
Reading Research Quarterly, v33 n4 p376-78 Oct-Dec 1998
Summarizes a descriptive naturalistic study of the literary competence of a class of first and second graders as suggested by their responses during read-alouds of picture books. Finds that the children were sophisticated literary critics, and the storybook read-aloud situation was an important site for the development of their literary understanding. (RS)
