Who argues in the classroom?



MU Faculty or unit

Faculty of Arts

Description This lecture seeks to investigate the relationships between students' argumentation during whole class discussion and their engagement. The research we report here was carried out on 639 ninth-grade students at Czech lower secondary schools. Observations took place in language arts lessons; talk time and the number of utterances with argumentation were recorded for each student. At the same time, achievement was measured using a standardized reading literacy test. Also, student engagement was assessed using student self-reports.
