Abstract:
			
This book offers a model of classroom discourse analysis that uses
systemic functional linguistic theory and associated genre theory to
develop a view of classroom episodes as 'curriculum genres', some of
which operate in turn as part of larger unities of work called
'curriculum macrogenres'. Drawing on Bernstein's work, Christie argues
that two registers operate in pedagogic discourse: a regulative
register, to do with the goals and directions of the discourse; and an
instructional register, to do with the particular 'content' or
knowledge at issue.  Each can be shown to be realized in distinctive
clusters of choices in the grammar.  The operation of the regulative
register determines the initiation, pacing, sequencing and evaluation
of the overall pedagogic activity.  It serves to draw various fields
of experience and knowledge from beyond the school (the instructional
register) and to 'relocate' them for the purposes of teaching and
learning.

The book explores the model and demonstrates the methodology of school
discourse analysis in considerable detail. The methodology is set out,
explained and exemplified in selections of classroom texts, both
spoken and written, and over a range of subject areas, that cover the
years of schooling from the preparatory or kindergarten class to the
secondary school. Overall, schools emerge as major sites of symbolic
control in a culture.
