The paper deals with the study of language practices in the classroom and focuses on the concept of academic discourse practices. The focus is on selected transliterated sequences from a video study examining teaching practices of academic language support. The analysis shows that teachers, both during phases of whole-class work and individual work, offer pupils to participate actively in academic discourse practices.
