Coach Bombay's Kids Learn to Write: Children's Appropriation of Media Materials for School Literacy.
Dyson, Anne Haas
Research in the Teaching of English, v33 n4 p367-402 May 1999
Examines the "whats" and "hows" of first-grade urban children's appropriation of sports and sports-related media material for participation in unofficial peer worlds and official academic ones. Reveals the potential hybrid nature of even the earliest of children's written texts. Suggests that learning to write involves work of the imagination on the part of children and teachers. (RS)
