Jenni Ingram, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education and Victoria Elliott, Associate Professor of English and Literacy Education have written a new book titled ‘Research Methods for Classroom Discourse’

Language, both spoken and written, is key to understanding learning processes in the classroom. Research Methods for Classroom Discourse is for those who want to investigate spoken interaction or other discourse in the classroom. It lays out clearly the different approaches which are possible, identifying the key principles of each. It addresses the differences between them and the consequences these differences might have for teachers and researchers. Each approach is outlined in terms of practical methods advice, reasons for use, and case studies in which the approach has been used in classroom discourse.

Further details of the book which was published by Bloomsbury on 17 October can be found here.
