|I see what you mean. Using spoken discourse in the classroom. A handbook for teachers.|
|Anne Burns, Helen de Silva Joyce and Sandra Gollin|
Is 'spoken language' as presented in textbooks a true reflection of
authentic spoken discourse? How can teachers collect and use authentic
spoken language in the classroom? What are the main differences between
spoken and written language? This practical and accessible hanbook
encourages teachers of language and literacy to consider why using
authentic spoken discourse as part of classroom tasks benefits
second language learners.
It provides them with guidelines for collecting, transcribing and using authentic language as a part of their teaching program. Tasks for readers and case studies make the book easy to read even for newcomers to the field.
