With vast box notes, conscientiously chosen pupil and instructor self-reports within the kind of interviews and concentration teams, and thorough examinations of recorded lecture room discussions, scholar papers with professor reviews, and scholar notebooks, Nowacek provides a nuanced and fascinating research that outlines how move isn't easily a cognitive act yet a rhetorical person who contains either seeing connections and offering them to the teachers who're institutionally located to acknowledge and cost them.

She proposes move is healthier understood as an act of recontextualization, and she or he builds in this premise in the course of the booklet by way of drawing from past paintings in cognitive psychology, task concept, and rhetorical style conception, in addition to her personal analyses of pupil work.
