Story Writers and Story Re-tellers
Question: What is the relationship between the story read aloud and the re-tellers of the story?
Answer: The quality of the story is reflected in the story re-teller’s language. The quality of the original story does make a difference.
Comment: I think this finding has interesting implications in terms of developing the student re-teller’s language. RayS.
