Following an approach informed by sociocultural theory (SCT) and conversation analysis (CA), this paper explores peer roles in analytical sharing sessions of excerpts of learners’ own L2 production, which focus on (1) vocal, (2) nonvocal, and (3) material modes, and (4) the three combined (multimodality). The longitudinal data show that the diverse roles vary greatly as does their impact on displays of learner’s analytical skills in the three modes and the development of classroom community.
