Topic: Predictors And Pathways To Anti-Social Behaviour In Classroom Interaction Among Senior Secondary School Students In Lagos State

Description: A social interaction perspective on classroom interaction studies the mechanisms teachers and students use to conduct their classroom businesses. The study examined a pattern of behaviour that is verbally or physically harmful to other students in classroom interaction. These include verbal abuse, bullying,stealing, graffiti, vandalism and so on. It first discusses the ways teachers and students have organised turn-taking and the ways they use their turns at talk to engage in classroom activities. One particularly important format for these activities is the action sequences of teacher initiation, student response, and teacher evaluation of that response (the IRE-sequence). Next it addresses two strands of classroom interaction research that particularly aim to relate classroom practices to larger societal issues.
