Overview

Exploring Classroom Discourse is the second title in the new Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics series, featuring introductory textbooks covering the key topics in Applied Linguistics.

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).

Adopting the back-to-front approach of the RIAL series, the book focuses first on problems and practices in teaching and learning in classroom discourse, moves onto engagement with these problems, considering both traditional and alternative approaches to analyzing classroom discourse and then in the final section draws out the theoretical implications.

Exploring Classroom Discourse is an essential textbook for teachers, post-graduate/graduate students and advanced undergraduates studying in the areas of Applied Linguistics, Education, TESOL.
