Abstract: Supporting students' engagement in disciplinary practice is a major tenant of recent reforms in science policy and reform, and yet eliciting and building upon students' everyday knowledge through engagement in scientific practice remains a central challenge to this work. This paper presents evidence of how problematizing a term previously used to design scaffolds embedded in technological tools and supports utilized in smaller, face-to-face settings can work in a class-wide setting, as a support for noticing gaps in students' current explanations both while motivating the need to engage in investigations and while building consensus explanations to account for science phenomena.
