Examined social influences on the reasoning and rhetorical strategies of fourth graders. Found that the use of argument stratagems snowballed, there were fewer and fewer lines of discussion between successive appearances of a stratagem, and the snowball phenomenon was more pronounced during discussions with open participation than during discussion with teacher-controlled participation.
