Connecting, Resisting, and Searching for Safer Places: Students Respond to Mildred Taylor's "The Friendship."
Moller, Karla J.; Allen, JoBeth
Journal of Literacy Research, v32 n2 p145-86 Jun 2000
Analyzes the discussion of four "struggling" fifth-grade girls and the researcher as they transacted with Mildred Taylor's "The Friendship." Shows how participants' responses to the text and adult and peer guidance created a response development zone. Notes the girls used reading, writing, and discussion to address comprehension difficulties and construct multiple levels of meaning. (RS)
