Abstract: This work examines two lessons implemented one year apart by the same 11th grade English teacher. The lessons occurred at the same time of year and were around the analysis of the same passage from a novel. However, the task structure and the way the teacher mediated the discussion differed. The findings detail the consequences of these differences for students’ engaging with each other in building literary interpretations and arguments. Implications for the design and implementation of literary tasks and discussion are considered.
