Stone, Sandra J.; Christie, James F.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v10 n2 p123-33 Spr-Sum 1996
Examined the collaborative literacy learning that occurred in a literacy-enriched sociodramatic play center. Literacy behaviors were coded from transcripts of 15 hours of free play. Found substantial cross-age literacy-based collaboration, with almost half the interactions involving older children helping younger children. This collaboration was very effective in getting recipients to engage in reading and writing behaviors. (HTH)
