Organizing Participation in Cross-Sex Jump Rope: Situating Gender Differences within Longitudinal Studies of Activities.
Goodwin, Marjorie Harness
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v34 n1 p75-106 2001
Investigates how children use directives and forms of exclusion to organize play activity. Elementary school children of mixed ethnicity were observed playing jump rope over one month. Girls' dominance in the game was observed to change over time. The ability to use actions that tell others what to do in a very direct fashion in cross-sex interaction changes over time, as children become more skilled in the activity. (Author/VWL)
