Title: Exploring Classroom Discourse
Subtitle: Language in Action
Written By: Steve Walsh
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415570671/
Series Title: Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics
Description:

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics consists of introductory
level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, designed
for those entering postgraduate studies and language professionals
returning to academic study. The books take an innovative "practice to
theory" approach, with a ‘back to front’ structure which takes the reader
from real life problems and issues in the field, then enters into a
discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns. The final
section concludes by tying the practical issues to theoretical foundations.
Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key
terms, and an annotated further reading section.

This book looks particularly at the relationship between language,
interaction and learning. Providing a comprehensive account of current
perspectives on classroom discourse, the book aims to promote a fuller
understanding of interaction, regarded as being central to effective
teaching and introduces the concept of classroom interactional competence
(CIC).

The case is made in this book for a need not only to describe classroom
discourse, but to ensure that teachers and learners develop the kind of
interactional competence which will result in more engaged, dynamic
classrooms where learners are actively involved in the learning process.
This approach makes an invaluable resource for language teachers, as well
as students of language and education, and language acquisition within the
field of applied linguistics.
