Abstract Title: STEP UP: Analyzing Discussions of Underrepresentation
Abstract: In previous research, in-class discussions of underrepresentation have been found to increase women's interest in physics and their physics identities. Understanding these conversations and their effect on broader classroom discussion might offer insight into what instructors can do to bolster women's physics identities and interests throughout the school year. To investigate, we recorded two sections of an experienced high school physics teacher implementing the Women in Physics lesson developed for the STEP UP project. We will present an analysis of two aspects of an in-class discussion of underrepresentation: speaking time, and students' argument hedging and warranting.
