The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the theoretical underpinnings, methodological concerns, and pedagogical implications of the study of classroom discourse ' the study of who can say what to whom, when and where, for what purposes, under what conditions, and with what outcomes in a range of classroom contexts. The course critically reviews empirical research on classroom discourse (both recent and classical investigations), and covers the accepted methods for conducting research on classroom discourse including different approaches to collecting, recording, and analyzing both verbal and nonverbal discourse. A range of theoretical approaches to analyzing discourse are also covered.
