Hammerberg, Dawnene D.
Language Arts, v78 n3 p207-16 Jan 2001
Explores graphical, hypertextual, interactive elements of children's literature and compares them to the characteristics of writing taught in early elementary school. Finds mismatches between ways children are taught to write and the materials they are reading. Discusses finding places where early elementary writing instruction can be updated to include hypertextual elements, multiple perspectives, and meaning beyond printed words. (SR)
