Collaborative Literacy Activity in Print-Enriched Play Centers: Exploring the "Zone" in Same-Age and Multi-Age Groupings.
Christie, James F.; Stone, Sandra J.
Journal of Literacy Research, v31 n2 p109-31 Jun 1999
Describes the collaborative literacy activity that occurred in one teacher's sociodramatic play center in a multi-age classroom (K-2) and a kindergarten classroom. Finds the children in the multi-age group engaged in a larger amount and a broader range of collaborative literacy activities than did the kindergartners; and the collaborative interactions were more complex than the zone of proximal development suggests.
