The Social Environment of the Classroom: A Vygotskian Perspective on Small Group Process.
Smagorinsky, Peter; Fly, Pamela K.
Communication Education, v42 n2 p159-71 Apr 1993
Explores the relationship between patterns of discourse in teacher-led discussions of literature and in the small-group discussions that follow them. Finds that teachers who model interpretive procedures without teaching students how to employ them do not appear to empower students to lead themselves in fruitful discussions. (SR)
