Abstract

The objective of this poster is to explain how students in a linguistically heterogeneous classroom became influential during small group mathematical discussions. In particular, the study focuses on the role of the teacher on: (1) the perceived merit of students' contributions; and students' (2) position of intellectual authority; (3) access to the conversational floor; and (4) access to interactional space. This analysis extends our understanding of equitable classrooms to consider interactional dimensions of student influence.
