This book makes techniques widely used in the field of discourse analysis accessible to a broad audience and illustrates their application in the study of classroom talk. Its separate chapters illustrate the analysis of interactional resources such as turn taking, participation frameworks, narrative and contextualization cues, and modeling forms of discourse analysis teachers may practice in their classrooms. Throughout, the author urges readers to use these analytic tools to investigate their own assumptions about what goes on in classrooms, what counts as knowledge, and how features of talk and interaction influence who gets to learn.
