A questionnaire, distributed to 43 (23 NS and 20 NNS) students in composition classes taught by NS and NNS teachers, explored student attitudes towards teachers. Teacher-student interaction patterns were investigated via 12 (3 NS and 9 NNS) students' video-recorded writing conferences, two each, one with the NS and the other with the NNS teacher. Student attitude change was investigated via post-conference interviews.I can predict what the NEST would pick as weakness about my paper. I know a certain part of my essay is weak but I dona#39;t know how to make it better. Ia#39;d rather see what the NNEST thinks. (Christopher) ac The NNEST, because she grades it.
