Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Investigating Classroom Discourse
Written By: Steve Walsh
Description:

Investigating Classroom Discourse is an exciting new series which addresses
the need for a refreshing approach to research on areas of spoken language.
These previously compartmentalized contexts, such as media discourse and
classroom discourse, are brought together through the common use of corpus
linguistics as a framework for analysis.

Investigating Classroom Discourse presents language use and interaction as
the basis of good teaching and learning, and provides teachers and
researchers with the tools to analyze classroom discourse and move towards
more effective instruction.

The book provides an overview of the existing approaches to describing and
analyzing classroom discourse and identifies the principal characteristics
of classroom language, by focusing mainly on the second language classroom.
Other contexts featured include primary and secondary classrooms as well
as higher education settings.

Using spoken corpora, such as classroom recordings and reflective feedback
interviews from a sample group of teachers, Steve Walsh demonstrates the
SETT (Self Evaluation of Teacher Talk) as a framework for analyzing
discourse within the classroom, and highlights the improvements SETT promotes.

Investigating Classroom Discourse will appeal to applied linguists,
teachers and researchers of TESOL, as well as practitioners on MEd or
taught doctorate programs.
