Preschool Deaf Children's Use of Signed Language during Writing Events.
Williams, Cheri Lynn
Journal of Literacy Research, v31 n2 p183-212 Jun 1999
Examines five preschool deaf children's use of sign language during free-choice writing. Finds the children used both signed language and nonverbal expression to engage in representational, directive, interactional, personal, and heuristic use of language to support their writing endeavors. Raises the question of whether nonverbal expression might be salient among emergent writers who are not deaf. (RS)
