Making Meaning in Classrooms: Social Processes in Small-Group Discourse and Scientific Knowledge Building.
Richmond, Gail; Striley, Joanne
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v33 n8 p839-58 Oct 1996
Analyzes group discourse (n=24) during laboratory investigations in order to understand how students solve scientific problems and the ways social roles shape the development and articulation of arguments. Results indicate that knowledge building depends on students learning to use tools of the scientific community and the social context in which they practice developing skills. Contains 31 references.
