Classroom interaction: influencing factors for enhancing STT ( student talk time )
MetadataShow full item record
In the traditional classroom setting learners do not get the opportunity to talk in the class. That is why it becomes difficult to identify whether the students understand the lessons or not. However, classroom interaction can be one valuable process through which a teacher can overcome students ' obstacles in their study process. The factors, for example, Teacher Talk Time (TTT) and Student Talk Time (STT), voice quality, communicative activities, elicitation , scaffolding, monitoring, non-verbal communication, feedback and error correction can be utilized in a way that can enhance language acquisition through classroom interaction . These factors help the students to think creatively, work cooperatively, share their ideas and knowledge , correct their mistakes, participate more actively in classroom activities, etc. From my internship result I found that the more I practiced these factors in class the more students get the chance to talk to in class and expand their knowledge.
