Abstract: The main objective of the proposed study was to explore Teacher–Student verbal interaction patterns in rural and urban schools of Faridkot (Punjab) using Flanders’ Interaction Analysis system. This study was significant because its findings and conclusions may stimulate teachers to improve their teaching behaviour in order to maximize student learning. To achieve the above study objective, Teacher Talk Ratio, Teacher Response Ratio, Teacher Question Ratio Instantaneous Teacher Response Ratio (TRR 89) and Instantaneous Teacher Response Ratio (TQR 89) ratio was calculated, using Flanders Interaction Analysis system to secure the data. The sample for present study was comprised of two clusters of students of class IX standard from rural and urban school, Faridkot in Punjab. The observation used for Flander's class Room Interaction Analysis to analyse the data and To do this, time sampling was used and each classroom was observed for (20 minutes) in a 45-minutes class. After obtaining and encoding the data, it was tabulated, analysed, and interpreted by using ratio formula as given by Flanders’ Interaction Analysis system To conclude, the scene in urban class room is more encouraging, versatile student oriented, response oriented and question oriented, Rural class room needs to improve on TQR89 aspect key words rural and urban school Flander's class Room Interaction Analysis, Class Room Interaction.
