Abstract: Increasing students’ agency influences their persistence and has ramifications for their views of the nature of science. The idea of agency is closely tied to issues of authority and power. Here we study how classroom group conversations are directed and who has the authority to direct the conversation. We present a narrative analysis of a whole class discussion, analyze discourse patterns to infer the distribution of authority amongst relevant subgroups and demonstrate a shift toward a more equitable distribution and an increase in student agency.
