Abstract:
The failure of some pupils, especially those of working class or origin, to achieve' in schools has been the dominant focus for British sociology of education over much of its history. However, despite the wide range 'of alternative explanations proposed, little or no attention has been given to the demands made on pupils if they are to 'succeed' in school. The present study explores what pupils must do if' they are to display 'intelligence' in the course of classroom interaction. It does this through the examination of classroom process in one, rather 'peculiar', school.
