Abstract

This study examined requests and responses of first-grade children interacting in peer reading groups. The subjects were 45 first-grade students who comprised 9 separate reading groups. Interactions in the all-student groups were audio- and video tape recorded during a reading activity. Requests for information and action/object and responses were identified and analyzed according to linguistic form and function. Data analysis revealed that children differed in the variety and complexity of their requests.
