Can First-Grade Writers Demonstrate Audience Awareness?
Wollman-Bonilla, Julie E.
Reading Research Quarterly, v36 n2 p184-201 Apr-Jun 2001
Examines first graders' demonstrations of audience awareness in the context of Family Message Journal writing (in which children write a message to their families and receive written replies). Finds that the first graders demonstrated a sense of audience when writing for family readers, to get something they want, when prompted by their teacher to attend to audience needs while writing.
