Abstract: This poster presents an extension of the psycholinguistic theory of perspective taking to the analysis of reasoning and problem solving in discursive interaction. This extension amends and generalizes schema theory. We present illustrations of perspectival alignments achieved when constructing causal explanations or solving problems, including ways that perspectives shifted during the interactions. We hypothesize that successful learning arises in classrooms when students realign their perspectives with new models.
