Emerging Cognitive Skills for Writing: Sensitivity to Audience Presence in Five- through Nine-Year-Olds' Speech.
Littleton, Eliza Beth
Cognition and Instruction, v16 n4 p399-430 1998
Ten children, 5- to 9-years old, taught magic tricks to absent and present peers through tape-recorded and face-to-face instructions. Children's informative, descriptive, and persuasive speech was compared for absent and present peers, and effects of age, practice, and trick length were assessed. Results revealed skills for informative and expository writing that can be developed in young children. (TJQ)
