Description - Classroom Discourse Analysis by Betsy Rymes
This second edition of Classroom Discourse Analysis continues to make techniques widely used in the field of discourse analysis accessible to a broad audience and illustrates their practical application in the study of classroom talk, ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in discourse analysis, applied linguistics, and anthropology and education. Grounded in a unique tripartite "dimensional approach," individual chapters investigate interactional resources that model forms of discourse analysis teachers may practice in their own classrooms while other chapters provide students with a thorough understanding of how to actually collect and analyse data. The presence of a number of pedagogical features, including activities and exercises and a comprehensive glossary help to enhance students` understanding of these key tools in classroom discourse analysis research.
Features new to this edition reflect current developments in the field, including:
increased coverage of peer interaction in the classroom
greater connecting analysis to curricular and policy mandates and standards-based reform movements
sample excerpts from actual student classroom discourse analysis assignments
a new chapter on the repertoire approach, an increasingly popular method of analysis of particular relevance to today's multilingual classrooms
