Teacher talk: how talk scaffolds learning and engagement

Find out more about classroom interaction and why and how the talk might be more beneficial.
Classrooms develop their own discourse conventions, typically taking the form of teachers asking display questions (How many fingers have I got?) rather than real questions (How many brothers have you got?). A diet exclusively of teacher-initiated display questions may be an impoverished one, as Scott will attempt to show, drawing on studies of classroom interaction. For language learning, in particular, it might be more beneficial if at least some of the talk that is generated is both authentic and learner-initiated. Here he will show why and how.
