Talking about Literature in University Book Club and Seminar Settings.
Addington, Ann H.
Research in the Teaching of English, v36 n2 p212-48 Nov 2001
Explores ways in which adults discuss literature in two different settings--a graduate English seminar and a graduate English education book club course. Examines the role of speaker turns, tentative and presentational language, overlapping talk and questioning in those literature discussions. Explores the different theoretical and pedagogical perspectives of the two discourse communities within which the discussions were embedded. (SG)
