The Effect of the Presence of Two Adults--Chaperones or Teachers--on the Content of the Conversations of Primary School Groups during School Visits To a Natural History Museum.
Tunnicliffe, Sue Dale
Journal of Elementary Science Education, v9 n1 p49-65 Spr 1997
Investigates the content of conversations of three groups: (1) pupils and teacher; (2) pupils and chaperone; and (3) pupils alone during museum and zoo visits. Results indicate that children-only groups commented on behaviors and generated knowledge source remarks significantly less than those groups containing adults, and the presence of an adult affects the content of conversations on the traditional animal specimens. Contains 11 references. (JRH)
