What kind of a flower is that?

Fanselow, John

In 1980, Alan Maley, the Director of the British Council in Paris along with the head of the Goethe Institute in Paris invited me and a few others keen on analyzing classroom interaction and ways teachers and supervisors talked about lessons. I discussed the observation system that I had introduced in 1977 in the TESOL Quarterly in an article called Beyond Rashomon—Conceptualizing and describing the teaching act.

The piece I wrote for the meeting in Paris I titled What kind of flower is that? It was reprinted in Second language discourse: A textbook of current research. 1987. Edited by Johathan Fine. Norwood New Jersey: Ablex Publishing.
