Vieira, Rodrigo Drumond; Kelly, Gregory J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
In this paper, we present and apply a multi-level method for discourse analysis in science classrooms. This method is based on the structure of human activity (activity, actions, and operations) and it was applied to study a pre-service physics teacher methods course. We argue that such an approach, based on a cultural psychological perspective,…
