Dialectical Constraints To the Discursive Practices of a High School Physics Community.
Tobin, Kenneth; And Others
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v34 n5 p491-507 May 1997
Investigates how discursive practices in a physics class were constrained by social forces associated with the larger context. Reports that in addition to constructivism, belief sets that shaped the enacted curriculum related to time, content coverage, and examinations. Provides examples of students accepting the viability of scientific claims despite contradictions to their common sense notions. Contains 24 references. (Author/JRH)
