Learner Initiative in Conversation Management: An Application of van Lier's Pilot Coding Scheme.
Kinginger, Celeste
Modern Language Journal, v78 n1 p29-40 Spr 1994
Forty college students of second-year French were used to study the extent to which individual learners exercise initiative in structuring classroom talk. Textual outcomes of four typical tasks for pairs were examined. Interactions were coded in four areas (topic, self-selection, allocation, and sequencing); results showed variation in the extent to which tasks allow interaction resembling conversation.
