Bronson Hui – Modern Language Journal, 2024

Jaume Batlle Rodríguez; Natalia Evnitskaya – Modern Language Journal, 2024
In classrooms, teachers play a fundamental role in managing students' participation. As part of their classroom interactional competence to maximize interactional space for students' learning, teachers use multimodal resources to orchestrate turn-taking, allocate the next speaker, and manage repair sequences.
