Webinar outline:

The webinar refers to teachers that need help to identify and response to students’ argumentation in classroom or group discussions and thus, improve their ability to manage such discussions. More specifically, the webinar describes, through examples of real classroom discussions, the types of practical and theoretical arguments that emerge in such discussions and the types of grounds for each type of argument. In this way, chains of sub-issues discussions might be identified, organized, or even prompted by a teacher within the discussion. The above process enables the clarification of the network of arguments that emerge within an SSI discussion, especially in the way that the scientific, moral and emotional aspect intersect. The webinar, might also interest researchers dealing with SSI’s argumentation analysis.
