Teaching Genres: A Bakhtinian Approach.
Rockwell, Elsie
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v31 n3 p260-82 Sep 2000
Discusses the cultural/historical nature of teaching, drawing on Bakhtin's theory of speech genres to approach classroom discourse as a composite genre reflecting the history of teaching in each locality. Analysis of a lesson observed in a rural Mexican school shows how genres drawn from various sources convey different sorts of knowledge as they are woven into ongoing classroom conversation. (SM)
