"All Stories That Have Happy Endings Have a Bad Character": A Young Child Responds to Televisual Texts.
Smidt, Sandra
English in Education, v35 n2 p25-33 Sum 2001
Analyzes how a young child made sense of the stories she watched on video. Discusses how she used what was "at hand" to represent and re-represent the world; how she used repeated viewings to make sense of screen codes and conventions; and how initially watching a video in the company of an adult offered guided participation around televisual texts.
