Escalating Terror: Communicative Strategies in a Preschool Classroom Dispute.
Danby, Susan; Baker, Carolyn D.
Early Education and Development, v12 n3 p343-58 Jul 2001
Videotaped the communicative work of some young boys in a preschool classroom as they made themselves observable and hearable as owners of the block play area. Found that boys generated and escalated images of terror until the targeted child left the area. Boys used a range of communicative resources to construct group membership and assert individual identities. (Author/KB)
