Title: Creating Classroom Communities of Learning
Subtitle: International Case Studies and Perspectives
Edited By: Roger Barnard
María E. Torres-Guzmán
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691125
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

The case studies in this book are based on transcripts of classroom
interaction in nine different countries. In each chapter, the first author
explains the specific context and through a theoretical and/or experiential
perspective interprets the transcript data. The data are then
re-interpreted by other authors in the book, illustrating the complexity
and richness of interpretation and creating a dialogue among the book’s
contributors. At the end of each chapter, readers are then invited with
assistance to join in the conversation by providing their own
interpretations of other transcript data from the same context. The book
will be useful for student teachers or practicing professionals, as well as
all educators interested in exploratory classroom research.
