Abstract: The present paper reports on a history course in which the teacher implemented argumentative practices that integrated dialogic and critical aspects. The analysis of some successive activities shows that the establishment of argumentative norms in the class was far from smooth, although the teacher attempted to encourage collaboration among students. We show that when it is about blending dialogic and critical aspects of argumentation, breakdowns are inevitable but coping with them successfully leads to highly productive classroom discussions.
