"Movement and modeling in international teaching assistants' mathematics lectures"

This discussion will center on data collected by our colleagues at the Center for Research on English Language Learning and Teaching (CRELLT) in the Department of Applied Linguistics. We will analyze video and transcript of two TAs, specifically focusing on the embodiment of their lecturing: the back-and-forth movements and motions, gestures, underlining, mapping, drawing, and connecting that make up their explanations and act as complementary communicative competences to their speech.
