Examining Peer Collaboration in Online Inquiry
Castek, Jill; Coiro, Julie; Guzniczak, Lizbeth; Bradshaw, Carlton
Educational Forum, v76 n4 p479-496 2012
This study examines peer collaboration among four pairs of seventh graders who read online to determine what caused the downfall of the Mayan civilization. More and less productive collaborative interactions are presented through snippets of dialogue in which pairs negotiated complex texts. Few examples of how teachers can skillfully facilitate collaborative interactions currently exist, despite the call for these skills in the Common Core State Standards. Teaching ideas that support collaborative online reading are featured. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
