The Most Reasonable Answer: Helping Students Build Better Arguments Together
Authors: Alina Reznitskaya, Montclair State University (known to many of us in the P4/wC community) and Ian Wilkinson, The Ohio State University
This book is based on a strong collaboration among researchers, teachers, and P4C practitioners and offers a rich array of field-tested materials that support teachers in facilitating productive discussions in upper-elementary grades.
The Most Reasonable Answer is an innovative and comprehensive guide to engaging students in inquiry dialogue—a type of talk used in text-based classroom discussions. During inquiry dialogue, students collectively search for the most reasonable answers to big, controversial questions, and, as a result, enhance their argumentation skills and develop a deep understanding of the texts they read. Based on years of research and work in nearly fifty classrooms, this book is an essential resource for educators looking for new ways to teach critical thinking and engage students in high-quality discourse.
