Quality Interaction and Types of Negotiation in Problem-solving and Jigsaw Tasks
In this study I identify some aspects of quality interaction and compare successful negotiations in learner interaction in two types of task: problem-solving/prediction and jigsaw tasks. Negotiation of meaning is thought to contribute to language development, but this study goes beyond this and examines negotiations of form, task content, task procedure, personal experience and self-initiated repair, and I argue that these too should result in greater language proficiency.
