In this paper we explore the possibilities of building on the complementarities of practice and discourse, specifically community of practice and discursive positioning, as a way of developing accounts of the child's experience in the classroom. Our accounts are based on interpreting extracts of classroom practice which are drawn from a broader project concerned with describing participation in schooling. Our aim is to develop conceptual resources for understanding particular moments of interaction in a social setting.
