Transitions to the Conventional: An Examination of a First Grader's Composing Process.
Sipe, Lawrence R.
Journal of Literacy Research, v30 n3 p357-88 Sep 1998
Observes, for a school year, a first grader's spontaneous utterances and actions while composing. Identifies seven shifts in the composing process, and identifies four factors that influenced these shifts. Suggests that during the transitional period, a child's ownership of the process is set in a complex relationship with the teacher and peers, and the child's increasing privileging of conventional forms.
