Knowledge-Based Importations in Emergent Readings: Evidence of Contextual Constraints on Reading.
Elster, Charles A.
National Reading Conference Yearbook, v47 p232-41 1998
Analyzes and compares the types and frequencies of background knowledge children use during independent emergent readings, and those children and teachers use in group-shared reading experiences that precede emergent readings. Uses this information to provide evidence for a model of reading as an activity constrained by contextual factors such as coparticipants and implied reading task. (SR)
