Conference: International Conference on Language Teacher Education – Minneapolis, MN (May 19-21, 2011)
Title of Presentation: Conversation Analysis as a Tool for examining Teacher Knowledge in Practice

Abstract

While teacher knowledge research has been influential on teacher learning, our understanding of how teacher knowledge connects with actual classroom instruction remains limited. The current study aims to address this issue by triangulating research from conversation analysis, a subfield of discourse analysis, with data collected from teacher reflections and interviews.
