An Empirical Study into the Structure and Regulation of Instructional Interactions in Literacy Practices
Santamaria, Andres; de la Mata, Manuel L.
Literacy Research and Instruction, v51 n1 p48-67 2012
This article tries to analyze instructional interactions in which one participant structures the overall solving of the task so that the other participant appropiates the skills and abilities that were accomplished jointly. Another primary interest is to examine the semiotic mechanisms involved in the instructor-learner interaction. Results from a study conducted with adult subjects grouped into dyads of instructor and learner are presented. Analysis focused on the instructional actions adopted by the instructor during the development of the task, on the structure and nature of actions of placing, its regulation, the strategical levels of these actions, and the use of different referential perspectives to solve the task. The results showed differences in some aspects of instructional interactions in relationship with participants' literacy level. (Contains 1 figure, 8 tables and 2 footnotes.)
