Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book brings together Patricia F. Carini's concept of the developing child as a "maker of works" and M.M. Bakhtin's theory of language as "hero" to re-examine how we have defined and researched early written language development. Through a collection of five essays and a documentary account of one young writer, Himley explores fundamental questions about development, language use and learning, and phenomenological reading or description as a possible interpretive methodology in education and research. She demonstrates how to understand writing as the complex semiotic authoring of self and culture enacted through actual moments of concrete language use.

Synopsis:

In an effort to re-examine assumptions about written language development, the author views children's drawings and writing as the objectified workings of the human mind, and explores a new concept of the developing child as a "maker of works".

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 227-232) and index.
