VanSledright, B. A.; Grant, S. G.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v19 n3 p283-304 Sum 1991
Argues for a conversational community within the social studies profession. Explores relevant attributes of such a community. Suggests that researchers ask (1) who speaks, (2) the topics of discourse, and (3) how language is used. Concludes that a conversational community does exist but is kept from its full potential by distrust between teachers and professors, among other factors. (DK)
