Synoptic and Dynamic Analysis of Classroom Discourse: The Role of Meta Language in Teaching Literacy.
Hammond, Jennifer
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v14 n2 p1-29 1991
The relationship between teachers' theories of language and learning and the nature of classroom discourse is explored. Data from two classes on Aborigine lifestyles suggest that there are three components functioning in all lessons: interpersonal, content, and metalanguage. The quality of the metalanguage component influences the overall quality of the language education program. (10 references) (Author/LB)
