Comparative Analyses of Discourse in Specialized STEM School Classes
Tofel-Grehl, Colby; Callahan, Carolyn M.; Nadelson, Louis S.
Journal of Educational Research, v110 n3 p294-307 2017
The authors detail the discourse patterns observed within mathematics and science classes at specialized STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) high schools. Analyses reveal that teachers in mathematics classes tended to engage their students in authoritative discourse while teachers in science classes tended to engage students in dialogic discourse. The authors examined variations in the type of discourse in relationship to the discipline being taught, the educational level of the teacher, and course requirements were also explored.
