Education Project

Title: IMproving instructional Practice through Argument-based Classroom Teaching (IMPACT)

PI: Chrysi Rapanta

Members: Dilar Encarnação dos Santos Cascalheira; Beatriz Gil

Project description

The project is aimed at developing and thoroughly evaluating argumentation-based pedagogical tools together with middle-grades school educators in diverse disciplines. The rationale is to understand what and how is actually said and done in the classroom, and after carefully analyzing it, to help teachers re-construct it in ways that it can promote argumentative practices and subsequently better informed and justified learning. Through a systematic observation, analysis, and training, the participant teachers are closely supported and assessed in their implementation of argumentative practices in their classrooms. At the same time, approximately 200 students have been also indirectly (through the teachers) supported, resulting in an improvement of their argumentation skills.

Entities involved:

  1. Escola Secundária da Rainha Dona Amélia (ESRDA), Lisbon (public school)
  2. Escola Secundária Pedro Nunes (EPN), Lisbon (public school)
  3. Colégio São Tomás (CST), Lisbon (private school)

Concluded intervention activities (as of December 2017)

  • June 2016: two informative sessions at two of the three schools (ESRDA & CST); a third informative session (EPN) took place in September, together with a kick-off meeting with the participant teachers (in total, ten from all the three schools).
  • July-December 2016: non-participant classroom observations (approximately 80).
  • January 2017: personal interviews with each one of the teachers involved in the project defining their needs for their further involvement in the project. Seven of them decided to continue with being part of a teacher-training program in argumentation strategies.
  • January to May 2017: Teacher-training course in argumentation strategies accredited by the Ministry of Education (FCSH). Instructor: Chrysi Rapanta
  • March-May 2017: Individual design sessions provided to the teachers, either at the Institute or at the schools. A total of 40 hours of individual assistance was offered as part of the training and post-training phases.
