Abstract: In this study we examined a group of middle school students engaging in an NGSS-aligned lesson, using an instructional scaffold (Model-Evidence-Link Diagram) to support their argumentation and meaning making process. We chose to code inductively for emerging patterns in their discourse to identify moments of shared knowledge construction of complex Earth and Space science topics. Our results found that paraphrasing was a key strategy that students used to reach understanding together and to ensure group members reached consensus. These findings suggest that rephrasing concepts in familiar terms is essential to deriving meaning and being able to utilize new concepts for higher level reasoning and argumentation, and critical evaluation of scientific models.
