Maternal Scaffolding and Children's Narrative Retelling of a Movie Story.
Clarke-Stewart, K. Alison; Beck, Robert J.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v14 n3 p409-434 1999
Analyzed 5-year-olds' retellings of movie segments following discussions with their mothers. Found that quality of stories was better for children whose mothers used scaffolding strategies (e.g., prompting children's memories, extended exchanges on critical topics used by their mothers) than for children whose mothers used no such strategies or for children who did not discuss the story with their mothers.
