Embodied Resources in a Repetition Activity in a Preschool L2 Classroom

Öz:
The interactional architecture of L2 teaching and learning in preschool classrooms has been explored only to a limited extent despite the growing literature on L2 classroom discourse. The existing literature on these settings mainly describes an interactional site with limited L2 interactional repertoires of the very young learners. Accordingly, preschool teachers seem to draw on repetitions and interactional routines to create opportunities for learner participation. Against this background, this study sets out to describe a preschool L2 classroom in which a pre-service language teacher education project is implemented. Based on a conversation analytic examination of the interactional unfolding of a repeat after me activity, aimed at eliciting the students’ self-identification, the current study documents the interactional management of embodied resources. The findings demonstrate that the teacher repeatedly deploys embodied directives and recurrently draws on repetition of the focal form. Consequently, the students show active engagement and participation in the activity. The findings also provide implications for teaching English to very young learners and research on classroom interactional competence, L2 classroom discourse, embodiment, and multimodality.

Yabancı dil sınıf söylemi üzerine sayıları gittikçe artan çalışmalara rağmen, anaokullarında gerçekleştirilen yabancı dil öğretimi ve öğreniminin etkileşimsel boyutu aynı sıklıkla incelenmemiştir. Bu tür ortamlar öğrencilerin sınırlı yabancı dil etkileşimi kaynaklarına sahip olduğu etkileşimsel alanlar olarak ön plana çıkmaktadır. Bu durum anaokulu yabancı dil öğretmenlerinin tekrarlama ve etkileşimsel rutinler gibi kaynaklara başvurarak öğrenci katılımına alan yaratması sonucunu ortaya çıkarmaktadır. Bu temelde, bu çalışma bir yabancı dil öğretmeni yetiştirme projesi kapsamında etkinliklerin gerçekleştirildiği bir anaokulu yabancı dil sınıfını tasvir etmeyi hedeflemektedir. Öğrencilerin isimlerini söylemelerini sağlama odaklı bir tekrarlama etkinliği üzerine gerçekleştirilen bir konuşma çözümlemesi (Sert vd., 2015) incelemesi yoluyla, bu çalışma bedenleşmiş (Yalvaç, Soylu & Arıkan, 2011) kaynakların yönetimi belgelemektedir. Bulgular, öğretmenin sürekli olarak bedenleşmiş yönergelere başvurduğu ve odaklanan yapının tekrarlanması üzerine yoğunlaştığını göstermektedir. Bunun sonucunda, öğrenciler derse etkin katılım göstermektedir. Bu bulgular çocuklara yabancı dil öğretimi, sınıf içi etkileşimsel yeti, yabancı dil sınıf söylemi, bedenleşme ve çokkiplilik alanlarına katkıda bulunmaktadır.
