Intercultural conversation : building understanding together
Dooley, Karen T. (2009) Intercultural conversation : building understanding together. Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, 52(6), pp. 497-506.
Classroom talk has long been recognised as central to student learning. Efforts are made therefore to 'stretch', 'extend' or 'push' English-language learners' (ELLS') linguistic and conceptual development by promoting more complex instructional talk. Conversation is a two-way activity, yet the focus is often directed to the ELL. To address this gap, this article suggests ideas for developing the capabilities of all students -- ELLS or otherwise -- for instructional conversations in mainstream classrooms where English is used by some as a first or only language, and by others as a second language.
