Sandoval, William A.; Enyedy, Noel; Redman, Elizabeth H.; Xiao, Sihan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Most of the research on argumentation in science education has documented the myriad flaws in students' argumentation, and the difficulties teachers have organising productive arguments in the classroom. We apply a sociocultural framework to argue that productive argumentation emerges from a classroom culture in which its practice meaningfully…
