Moller, Karla J.
Reading Psychology, v20 n4 p255-99 Oct-Dec 1999
Uses a social constructivist framework to investigate how five children at the end of first grade constructed images of themselves as readers with a purpose. Presents data in the form of narratives describing the children and their views. Discusses the children's reading identities and purposes for reading as condensed into five categories: practice, people, power, pleasure, and performance. (NH)
