The Discourse of "Development": How 9- to 12-year-old Children Construct "Childish" and "Further Developed" Identities within Their Peer Culture.
Kelle, Helga
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n1 p95-114 Feb 2001
Analyzed the discourse of 9- to 12-year-olds on the subject of their development, creating an ethnographic account of the meaning of development in peer culture. The interviewed children distinguished a linear concept of development as both a natural process and a goal. Their discourse continually reconceptualized the relations between the sexes according to age. (JPB)
