From “No” to “Let’s Think About That”: Systematically Managing Negative Feedback in L2 Classroom Discourse
The current study examines the systematicity with which one expert ESOL teacher provides and differentiates negative feedback practices across classroom interactions. Utilizing conversation analytic and ethnographic methods, varied examples of the teacher’s negative feedback practices will be examined from both teacher-initiated and learner-initiated sequences-of-talk.

TESOL 2013

“Hmm. Let’s Think.” Promoting Language Exploration in ESOL Classroom TalkThis presentation illustrates how one expert teacher systematically promotes language exploration in naturally occurring ESOL classroom talk. Participants are invited to consider (a) the pedagogical implications of these findings in relation to their teaching context, and (b) action research projects to examine their own methods for promoting language exploration.
