Effects of Dyadic Interaction on Argumentative Reasoning.
Kuhn, Deanna; Shaw, Victoria; Felton, Mark
Cognition and Instruction, v15 n3 p287-315 1997
Tested hypothesis that thinking about a topic enhances later reasoning quality about that topic. Found that, when young adolescents and adults discussed capital punishment, their range of different arguments increased, they shifted from one-sided to two-sided arguments, arguments were based within a framework of alternatives, and they were more aware of multiple views coexisting.
