Meaning Making in a Community of Learners: Struggles and Possibilities in an Urban Science Class.
Varelas, Maria; Luster, Barbara; Wenzel, Stacy
Research in Science Education, v29 n2 p227-45 1999
Examines how two dimensions of a community of urban science student learners--social-organizational and intellectual-thematic--evolved and influenced each other. Discusses the reasons why the teacher and student succeeded in developing a functional community but did not quite succeed in developing shared understandings in science. Contains 34 references.
