概要 The term power dynamics, within a sociological construct involves a group of people (usually two or more) who form a hierarchical structure in which some members have more influence, control or power are at the top, while those who have minimum influence, control or power are at the bottom. Based on this theoretical construct, this study follows the progression of 10 Japanese undergraduate students as they undergo a 16-week content course with 3 native speakers of English and one non-native speaker from China. The results revealed that although power and control still rested in the hands of the native speaking students, there was clear evidence that the accommodations made for the all the non-native speakers allowed them to become more active participants in their academic discussion groups.
