The Management of Time Lapses in Conventional Communicative Approaches.
Bruton, Anthony
TESL Canada Journal, v13 n2 p46-52 Spr 1996
Focuses on factors affecting timing in conventional communicative second-language classrooms, summarizes research evidence on the significance of timing, and identifies contexts where timing should be a consideration. The article argues for more use of time lapses, particularly deliberated silences, within the framework of classroom dynamics. (26 references) (Author/CK)
