Abstract: Research is needed to examine ways in which young learners explore and develop interests in everyday environments. This study applies Azevedo’s lines of practice research to conceptualize Mihir’s (pre-K to grade 1) participation in ‘A Bedtime Curiosity’ (ABC) with his mother, during which he asked questions and expressed topic interests, then co-explored possible answers and engaged in discussions. 162 questions were coded for interest topics to highlight patterns of cross-topic questioning. Results offer preliminary insights into what interest topics emerged as dominant or were backgrounded, residual, transitory or potentially unexplored by Mihir, contextualized by qualitative researcher memos of the ABC experience.
