This paper discusses pedagogic discourse in dalang (shadow play puppeteer) training. Systemic Functional Linguistics will be used as a tool for analysis. The concept of metafunctions will be employed to view realisations from each level of abstraction. Modelling, which is a critical issue in pedagogic discourse will be explored to know how a teacher uses "critical abstraction" – semiotic guidance in developing a skill. Classification and framing and notion of zone of proximal development will also be discussed on the discourse production.
