Teacher Talk: One Teacher's Reflections during Comprehension Strategies Instruction
Robertson, Dana A.
Reading Psychology, v34 n6 p523-549 2013
This study examined one tutor's evolving use of particular talk moves during comprehension strategies instruction in a university-based clinical setting. Through engaging in audiotape reflection and transcript analysis with a coach, the tutor made shifts toward more explicit and purposeful strategies instruction, yet did not consistently transfer these talk moves to routine practice. The viability of these reflection processes and directions for future research are discussed.
