Speaking of Writing: Some Functions of Talk in the ESL Composition Class.
Weissberg, Bob
Journal of Second Language Writing, v3 n2 p121-39 1994
The functions of oral language in university English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) composition classes are explored using a case study of instructional discourse in five ESL writing classes. Findings indicate relatively little classroom talk developed to topic invention/development or to oral rehearsal of potential written text. Techniques for teachers are suggested.
