Gumperz, John J.; Field, Margaret
Discourse Processes, v19 n1 p133-47 Jan-Feb 1995
Analyzes video recordings of classroom discourse in a cooperative learning program by using sociolinguistic methods to discover the actual content of a classroom dialog and how the participants infer the meaning of what is said. Concludes that, when children are left alone, they will involve themselves in the curriculum but frame it in perspective to their own concerns. (PA)
