Re-negotiating the Discourse of Lower Track High School Students.
Yerrick, Randy
Research in Science Education, v29 n2 p269-93 1999
Examines how lower-track science students understand shifts in standard classroom discourse patterns. Finds that students insert struggles for social status into classroom arguments about scientific ideas, making it difficult to separate in a group discussion whether evidence or the social politics of the class convinces students to accept an answer. Contains 40 references. (Author/WRM)
