Into The Classroom Media. A videotape of a presentation to a
university audience in which Deborah Tannen explains and illustrates
her linguistic approach to understanding conversations between women
and men. Including video clips of children at play and talking to
their best friends, Tannen shows that ways of speaking that tend to
characterize and sometimes distinguish women and men can be traced to
conversational styles learned as children growing up. Topics include:


- Why many men don't like to stop and ask for directions
- When do women tend to be more indirect than men-and when do men tend
 to be more indirect than women?
- Who talks more, women or men?
- Why are women so often told, "Don't apologize; it's not your fault"?
- Why do so many women complain, "He doesn't talk to me and he doesn't
 listen," whereas many men complain "She nags"?
- What conversational rituals common among women are taken too literally
 by men, and what conversational rituals common among men are taken too
 literally by women?

Also available:
Deborah Tannen: In-Depth. $74 when ordered with preceding tape.
25-minute video in whichTannen addresses key issues, including:

- The nature/nurture question: are conversational styles born or made?
- Is gender the most important factor affecting conversational
 interaction?
- Do these gendered patterns hold across cultures?
- What about power and dominance?
- How are linguistic and psychological approaches different?
