Drawing on recent socio-cultural approaches to research on language
learning and an extensive corpus of classroom video recording made over
four years, the book documents language learning as an epiphenomenon of
peer face-to-face interaction. Advanced technology for recording classroom
interaction (6 cameras per classroom) allows the research to move the focus
for analysis off the teacher and onto learners as they engage in dyadic
interaction. The research uses methods from conversation analysis with
longitudinal data to document practices for interaction between learners
and how those practices change over time. Language learning is seen in
learners' change in participation in their in social actions that occur
around and within teacher-assigned language learning tasks (starting the
task, non-elicited story tellings within tasks, and ending tasks). Web
links are provided so the reader can see the data from the classroom that
is the subject of the analyses.
