Talking the Talk: Snapshots from Australian Classrooms 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 are classroom scenarios as presented by teachers, overlaid by dialogue between teachers and mentors about changing teaching practice and pedagogy — through talk about talk.
