Seedhouse, Paul – Classroom Discourse, 2019
Seedhouse (2004) suggested that L2 classroom interaction can be understood in terms of sub-varieties or L2 classroom contexts. These are the 'interfaces' between pedagogy and interaction in which a particular pedagogical focus combines with a particular organisation of the interaction. However, Conversation Analysis does not see such organisations…

Online exchanges among learners are an important form of communication in language learning contexts. This is due to the affordances this medium of communication creates for learning as well as the growing interest in internationalization of curricula.

Geist, Barbara; Kupetz, Maxi; Glaser, Karen – Classroom Discourse, 2019
In primary-level German writing instruction, spelling discussions (German: "Rechtschreibgespräche") have become a well-established interactional method of teaching orthography, prompting the children to exchange their hypotheses about orthographic features of written words. Focusing on spellings of ambisyllabic consonants, this…

Stoewer, Kirsten; Musk, Nigel – Classroom Discourse, 2019
This paper examines how unplanned vocabulary work arises out of students' talk. Furthermore, we show how the teacher and students jointly contribute towards the ensuing teaching trajectories, whereby the vocabulary items are turned into 'teachables', i.e. interactionally emergent objects of explicit teaching. In doing so, we also explore what…

Stone, Paul – Classroom Discourse, 2019
In this article, I use conversation analysis (CA) to focus on how Japanese language resources are used in repair sequences that occur in 'off-task' English interactions in a lower-level EFL classroom at a Japanese university, considering how this may create opportunities for learning. While previous research has found that 'off-task' peer…

Houen, S.; Danby, S.; Farrell, A.; Thorpe, K. – Classroom Discourse, 2019
Teachers' interactional practices shape children's displays of knowledge. Teachers often rely on direct interactional devices, such as questions, to call for knowledge displays from children. However, case examples suggest that interactional strategies that downgrade teachers' expert status, such as 'I wonder…' formulations may enhance child…

Probyn, Margie – Classroom Discourse, 2019
The majority of learners in South African schools are African language speakers, yet the dominance of English in the political economy has meant that schools choose to switch to English medium instruction by Grade 4, before learners have the necessary English proficiency to access the curriculum, with negative effects on learning. This paper…

In a bilingual school, the linguistic and semiotic resources of students who speak one, two or several languages can be used in classroom discourse in order to embrace and strengthen the multiplicity of voices and languages in teaching and learning. In this article, four English language lessons -- where the medium of instruction mainly oscillates…
