Sipe, Lawrence R.
Reading Research and Instruction, v40 n4 p333-52 Sum 2001
Describes the variety of intertextual links made by the children as they listened to each variation of the Rapunzel story. Traces the development of their schema for the tale. Identifies seven types of intertextual connections. Consolidates the findings into a grounded theory of young children's schema-building for traditional stories, through their use of personal, text-to-text, and analytic responses. (SG)
