ROSEMBERG, Celia Renata y MANRIQUE, María Soledad. Children Telling Personal Experiences in Kindergarten: How do Teachers Promote Children's Participation?. Psykhe [online]. 2007, vol.16, n.1, pp. 53-64. ISSN 0718-2228. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282007000100005.
The aim of this study is to qualitatively analize situations in which children tell personal experiences in the circle at kindergarten. We focus on how teachers scaffold children as they tell personal experiences through a good structured narrative. We analysed 98 situations of collaborative retelling using the constant comparative method (Glasser y Strauss, 1967). In some cases teachers interpret the child's intention through certain cues in the child's discourse and assist the child as he/she verbally reconstructs his/her experience. In other situations teachers diverge from the child's intention and focus verbal interaction in topics which are periferic to the child discourse.
