This publication addresses the role of interaction in learning to be literate. Through talk, teachers develop students' conscious knowledge about texts, meanings and literate practice.
A strength of this book is the classroom scenarios as presented by the teachers, overlaid by dialogue between teachers and mentors about changing teaching practice and pedagogy - through talk about talk.
