How High School Students Experience and Learn from the Discussion of Controversial Public Issues.
Hess, Diana; Posselt, Julie
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v17 n4 p283-314 Sum 2002
Explores how two classes of 10th-grade students experienced and learned from a required social-studies course that focused explicitly on teaching students to become more effective participants in discussions of controversial public issues. Finds, for example, that students' perceptions of their peers had a greater influence on their participation than did their teachers' behavior. (Contains 30 references.) (Authors/PKP)
