About this book

This book brings together the work of leading experts in argumentation in science education. It presents research combining theoretical and empirical perspectives relevant for secondary science classrooms. Since the 1990s, argumentation studies have increased at a rapid pace, from stray papers to a wealth of research exploring ever more sophisticated issues.

This volume constitutes a unique collection and covers fundamental issues in argumentation such as cognitive, methodological and epistemological aspects; classroom-based research in teaching and learning of argumentation in science classrooms; and argumentation in context such as in socio-scientific and moral contexts. The book's underlying premise is that argumentation is a significant aspect of scientific inquiry and plays an important role in teaching and learning of science. Argumentation also contributes to the agenda of informed citizenship where students are encouraged and supported in evidence-based reasoning in their everyday lives.

From the reviews: "Argumentation in Science Education ! is a comprehensive and authoritative handbook on 'school scientific argumentation' ! . The book is principally aimed at researchers in didactics of science ! . The book comprises theoretical, empirical, and practical approaches that have clear implications both for analyzing and for fostering argumentation processes in the science classrooms of all educational levels, including teacher education. ! provides the readers with many powerful ideas that could eventually be inspected in subsequent investigations." (A. Aduriz-Bravo, Science & Education, September, 2010)
