There is a good book entitled Discourse and Identity by Bethan Benwell 
and Elizabeth Stokoe  which describes several approaches to analyzing 
transcripts, including CA. It also deals with CDA--can't remember if it 
includes written texts. Barbara Johnstone's Discourse Analysis is 
wonderful this way (for written text). Also, there is a  British text 
which deals with analyzing spoken language (and has some application for 
teaching)--can't remember the name. It is in my office. I think it's 
Analyzing Spoken Language.
