- While recent researches on economic education and classroom interaction are interested in what works in practical level, this study is more focused on “what is going on economic education lesson?" in analytically descriptive level. Through this study I tried to find out the answer to the questions: “how does a Korean economic education lesson work?" and "what is the unique feature of learning interaction in a Korean economic education classroom?" To answer these questions, a micro-ethnographic research method was employed. Data collection consisted of classroom observation, audio & video recording and interviews with students and teachers at a senior high school in Seoul. Through this study, an important feature of a Korean economic education lesson was identified: the major occurrence of SPS-1 & SPS-3interaction patterns, inquiry through textbook, and even teacher-guided but student-considered lesson interaction. Also, several differences are found, compared with a junior high school economics lesson: for example, no occurrence of educational breakthrough. As a result of this study, it is expected that Korean economic education teachers and practioners will become more aware of what is going on classroom and what they are doing in their economics lesson. This awareness will be able to make better the Korean economic education lesson. Also, the view of lesson which this study addresses makes it possible to avoid the two extreme views of lesson as schooling: the social determinism and psychological determinism. This study examined what is actually going on inside school, in classrooms, on a practical everyday basis. This will be a kind of methodological breakthrough in lesson interaction research.
