Abstract:Dialogic teaching has significant implications in the field of educational science that deem to provoke in-depth exploratory learning and respectful classroom relations. The aim of this study is to shed light on the reciprocal and collaborative dialogic interactions–how do students influence instructor's pedagogies and teaching practices–within the context of an ESL academic writing class at UIUC. Qualitative data was periodically collected through naturalistic classroom observations over the course of one semester and reflective interviews with the students and instructor. The results suggest that students play a crucial role in impacting the instructor’s teaching pedagogies and practices, but the effects are only acknowledged to a limited extent because of the complexity of the roles of students and teacher.
