Abstract:

'Researchers interested in fine-grained analyses of language will find
valuable models here for linking language structures with the meanings they
construe. Those unfamiliar with SFL can benefit from Christie's discussion
of the values and goals of education as manifested in the language of
teaching and learning. Her analysis of classroom discourse provides tools
and frameworks for students and researchers to focus on the role that
language plays in structuring learning opportunities.'
Mary J. Schleppegrell, Linguistics Department, University of California,
Davis.

'As a teacher and also as a professional involved in teacher education, I
consider this book essential reading for both pre-service and in-service
teachers.'
Viviane M. Heberle, Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Brazil

This book offers a model of classroom discourse analysis that uses systemic
functional linguistic theory and associated genre theory to develop a view
of classroom episodes as 'curriculum genres', some of which operate in turn
as part of larger unities of work called 'curriculum macrogenres'. Drawing
on Bernstein's work, Christie argues that two registers operate in
pedagogic discourse: a regulative register, to do with the goals and
directions of the discourse; and an instructional register, to do with the
particular 'content' or knowledge at issue. Each can be shown to be
realized in distinctive clusters of choices in the grammar. The operation
of the regulative register determines the initiation, pacing, sequencing
and evaluation of the overall pedagogic activity.

The book sets out its methodology in detail by reference to a number of
classroom texts, and a range of school subjects. Overall, schools emerge as
sites of symbolic control in a culture.
