Students' Oral Contributions to Classroom Verbal Interaction.
Dunkin, Michael J.
This review of the literature related to research on oral communication in the classroom pursues two issues: the types of oral contributions students make and whether those types are related to school achievement. In considering research on oral communication in classrooms, the paper looks at information that considers whether the communication was an initiation or a response, the relation of student performance of pedagogical moves to student achievement, the cognitive properties of various classroom discourses, and the linguistic properties of student talk. It then briefly provides direction for improving student oral communication in classrooms. (TJ)
