Classroom Conflict: Controversy Versus Debate in Learning Groups.
Johnson, David W.; Johnson, Roger
American Educational Research Journal, v22 n2 p237-56 Sum 1985
The effects of two types of structured academic conflict, controversy and debate, were compared with individual study on a number of dependent variables. Sixth graders (n=72) were assigned conditions on a stratified random basis controlling for sex, reading ability, and handicapping conditions. Results indicated that controversy promoted the most positive outcomes. (Author/BS)
