On the Carpet: Emergent Writer/Readers' Letter Sharing in a Penpal Program.
Berrill, Deborah P.; Gall, Molly
Language Arts, v76 n6 p470-78 Jul 1999
Analyzes the value of "time on the carpet" by examining how a class of first and second graders negotiate and construct meanings of letters from penpals (university preservice teacher candidates) during whole-class sharing time. Describes two functions of these meetings: sociocognitive re/construction and enculturation of textural norms of letter writing; and the celebration and valuing of human relationships. (SR)
