This study examined verbal behavior of students and experienced teachers at three grade levels during three classroom activities: microcomputer work, group work, and recitation. Overall, the students in microcomputer classrooms had significantly more task-related talk than the other two groups; recitation students had the least. Student verbal behavior was found to vary across grade level as well as by activity structure. There were no sex differences. Teacher verbalization during microcomputer work was consistently low across all grades. However, significant differences were found for teacher verbal behavior across activities. Implications of this observational research are discussed.
