Summary

The major developmental challenge for children is not simply to create a unified text world but to move among multiple worlds, carrying out multiple roles and coordinating multiple space/time structures. A study observed eight primary-grade students over a 2-year period and focused on the interrelationships between children's creation of written text worlds and their use of or response to forces outside those worlds but within the situation context of the classroom. The children, from a language arts class, were first observed and then descriptive data, audiotapes of the children's talk, photocopies of their drawn and written products, and notes on observed behaviors, was compiled. Findings showed (1) the observed children's text worlds were, as a group, gradually less governed by drawing and any accompanying talk: the group moved from a tendency to comment on pictures, to a tendency to observe scenes, and finally to act within dynamic worlds; and (2) their composing behaviors suggested that their use of writing became progressively more involved with their ongoing social and their wider experienced worlds: the children specifically shared and discussed their written messages and the relationship of those messages to the wider world rather than only to their pictures. (Five tables of data and 17 writing examples are included, and 52 references are appended.) (MS)
