4.2.2 Group II

There are two boys in Group II, B3 and B4. The male teacher is walking around the classroom, monitoring the pupils, and contributing to their discussion on two occasions. The set task is to rank, in order of how difficult the rules are to obey, a set of nine rules which American soldiers were expected to obey during the Vietnam War. The rules have been given to the boys on cards, which they are arranging on the table; this activity means they can avoid oral communication to a large extent. The speaker who is graded by the S.E.B. is B3, who is assessed as Foundation Level, Grade 5. Both boys seem relatively uninterested in the task, producing some co- operative features, some non-co-operative features, but no competitive features.
