Abstract

This paper adopts an ethnomethodological and conversation analytic (CA) approach to investigate children’s competence “from within” (Speier, 1973) and as achieved in situ during children’s storytelling. Ethnomethodology demonstrates how members competently produce and manage their everyday social interactions (Sacks, 1995). This paper first examines studies of storytelling and highlights the lack of investigations into the interactional aspects of children’s storytelling. Next video-recordings of young children engaged in storytelling in a playground are examined. Findings show how children as storytellers and story recipients use voice-related markers, gesture and physical actions to invoke and achieve competence within their peer group.
