Vieira, Rodrigo Drumond; De Medeiros Dias, Humberto; De Melo, Viviane Florentino; Do Nascimento, Silvania Sousa – Science Education International, 2016
In this article we approach the problem of identification and recognition of argumentation by teacher educators of a physics undergraduate course of a large university in the southeast of Brazil. Our proposed markers criteria, such as "opposing" of ideas and "reciprocal justifications" were partially validated by the…
