Socio-constructivist and socio-cultural lenses on collaborative peer talk in a secondary mathematics classroom
This paper uses socio-constructivist and socio-cultural lenses to examine transcripts of pupils’ peer talk recorded while they were undertaking openended mathematical tasks in a naturalistic classroom setting. I discuss the two theoretical frames and then present episodes of peer talk from pupils
between 12 and 14 years old which demonstrate how a socio-constructivist view of the zone of proximal development is enacted, and how a sociocultural lens offers a window on social aspects of these established working groups which serve to provide the necessary support to enable all members of the group to access the mathematical knowledge being constructed.

Abstract

This paper uses socio-constructivist and socio-cultural lenses to examine transcripts of pupils’ peer talk recorded while they were undertaking openended mathematical tasks in a naturalistic classroom setting. I discuss the two theoretical frames and then present episodes of peer talk from pupils
between 12 and 14 years old which demonstrate how a socio-constructivist view of the zone of proximal development is enacted, and how a sociocultural lens offers a window on social aspects of these established working groups which serve to provide the necessary support to enable all members of the group to access the mathematical knowledge being constructed.
