    Evidence of Distorted Communication as Impetus for Use of Strategies to Achieve 'Something Like' an Ideal Speech Situation

Abstract

This paper seeks to analyze the intersubjective nature of students' interactive utterances. The analysis is based on three episodes within a groupwork context from a qualitative case study focussed on the adoption of aspects of Complex Instruction in a Year 7 mathematics class. The analytical framework uses Habermas's Theory of Communicative Action (TCA). This analysis allows for a fresh perspective on the importance of equity, and equitable teaching practices, such as those embodied in Complex Instruction, in the establishment of a space for discursive problem solving.
