Persuasion and Its Role in Meeting Educational Goals.
Hynd, Cyndie
Theory into Practice, v40 n4 p270-77 Aut 2001
While using refutational text helps students meet traditional learning goals, it is less useful in environments where students must understand that meaning is constructed, knowledge is dynamic rather than static, and knowledge is constituted in power relations. The paper examines the role of persuasion and competing goals (knowledge, socialization, critical thinking and emancipatory goals), discussing how to resolve the dilemma. (SM)
