The aim of this study is to display the important contribution which
critical analysis makes to our understanding of students/teachers
relationship through the analysis of their discursive practices. The work
focuses specifically on interaction within Moroccan classrooms.

In order to examine teaching/learning relations between teachers and
students, this research presents a detailed analysis of the linguistic
features used by teachers.

Such discourse features are IRF patterns, modality, politeness, Q/A and
interruption. A comprehensive analysis of these features requires a focus
on the social and cultural practices of which classroom practice is a part.
This book demonstrates comprehensively the inextricable link between the
participants' classroom discursive practices and their social and cultural

The research provides a detailed analysis of classroom discursive practices
and describes specific ways in which teachers control students'
interaction. It traces such practices to many factors, which are discussed
and examined extensively. It demonstrates that both students' and teachers'
assumptions and social beliefs of the classroom practices contribute to
producing particular discourse practices in the classroom. These discursive
practices can either hinder or foster the classroom interaction. The book
concludes that both students and teachers' classroom practices shape and
are shaped by their social and cultural practices.

The book also highlights some of the methodological difficulties emerging
from applying Critical Discourse Analysis to a classroom data.
