Social Dynamics During Peer Response: Patterns of Interaction in the L2PR Corpus
This chapter explores the social dynamics of peer conversations in the L2PR Corpus (Roberson 2015) using Storch’s (2002) patterns of interaction framework to understand how learners share control over the direction of the task, and how they engage with each other’s feedback on writing. We first provide a description of the data sources used in the analysis (peer response transcripts; stimulated recall interview transcripts; and first and second drafts of student writing), and then examine the relationship between patterns of interaction and revision practices. Chapter 13 will further explore one linguistic feature of the patterns of interaction analyzed in this chapter: the use of modal verbs as stance markers by collaborative and non-collaborative pairs.
