Boyle, Bill; Charles, Marie
Literacy, v45 n1 p10-18 Apr 2011
This article relates a child's development in story writing and the progress that she made in achieving text cohesion, spelling development and ideation through the collaborative process. The case study investigates the integration of major aspects of writing development such as collaboration, the importance of peer interactions through social learning and the fusion of illustrations and writing to assist children's communication and understanding. The authors examine the rationale for the inclusion of collaborative peer-assisted writing and peer interaction as a social writing process, supporting the young writer's affective domain.
