Short, Kathy; Kaufman, Gloria; Kaser, Sandy; Kahn, Leslie H.; Crawford, Kathleen Marie
Language Arts, v76 n5 p377-85 May 1999
Investigates how teacher talk and social interaction influence children's discussions, by comparing the talk occurring within literature circles in fourth-grade classrooms where teachers were and were not present. Discusses the four roles teachers took (facilitators, participants, mediators, and active listeners). Notes strategies students used to generate and facilitate their discussions that related to teacher roles within the classroom. (SR)
