Panel on Discourse Analysis in the Curriculum.
Petrie, Charles; And Others
These five papers reflect a single project--discourse analysis in the curriculum. The first paper, "The Small Group Course as a Setting for Naturalistic Research" (Charles Petrie and Charles Laufersweiler), describes the teaching process of integrating both a graduate and an undergraduate class from which the other four papers describe resulting research. The second paper, "Discourse Analysis: Making One's Interpretations Explicit" (Stuart J. Sigman), presents four problem areas that represent methodological skills and decisions with which student (and professional) discourse analysts must concern themselves. The third paper, "Nonverbal Correlates of Within-Turn Speaker Repetitions" (William J. Morphis), describes an investigation that assessed nonverbal behavior occurring exclusively during within-turn speaker dysfluencies--specifically, repetitions. The fourth paper, "The Interactional Construction of Group Meaning" (Sheila Sullivan), presents a description and analysis of a small group meeting. The final paper, "Questions in Group Discourse" (Marcley H. Wendell), describes an investigation that focused on the strategic uses of questioning to direct the process, content, and outcomes of group work. (HOD)
