Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Children's retellings of stories and personal incidents have been used for many different reasons in research. Piaget (1926) used retellings to examine children's conception of time. Bartlett (1932) used oral retellings to study memory. O'Donnell, Griffin and Norris (1967) collected retellings of a silent movie to study differences between oral and written language. Lately, retellings have been used in the study of comprehension, particularly reading comprehension (Kalmbach, 1981).
