Offering an interdisciplinary approach, The Handbook of Classroom Discourse and Interaction presents a series of contributions written by educators and applied linguists that explores the latest research methodologies and theories related to classroom language.

• Organized to facilitate a critical understanding of how and why various research traditions differ and how they overlap theoretically and methodologically

• Discusses key issues in the future development of research in critical areas of education and applied linguistics

• Provides empirically-based analysis of classroom talk to illustrate theoretical claims and methodologies

• Includes multimodal transcripts, an emerging trend in education and applied linguistics, particularly in conversation analysis and sociocultural theory
