When and How Peers Give Reasons: Justifications in the Talk of Middle School Children.
Goetz, Peggy J.; Shatz, Marilyn
Journal of Child Language, v26 n3 p721-48 Oct 1999
Examined the production of verbal justifications quantitatively and qualitatively in eight pairs of children whose natural discourse was videotaped, transcribed, and coded. Children produced most justifications both in the context of elaborating on a previously asserted claim and in conflicts. The statement justified and the justifications themselves most frequently focused on facts, evaluations, actions, and habitual characteristics or occurrences. (SM)
