Harwood, Debra; Collier, Diane R. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Children's intra-actions with the natural world offer an important lens to revisit notions of literacies. They allow for a decentring of humans--here children--as actors.

Martello, Julie – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2004
This article explores some of the implications inherent in the pedagogical strategy of encouraging students to 'try' or 'have a go', particularly within the context of early writing and spelling.
