How Students Talk about Race and Identity: Unpacking Social-Emotional Talk

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This exploratory study aims to conceptualize a model of shared meaning-making and identify social-emotional talks in politically-charged discussions in CSCL. We conceptualized social-emotional talk as the extent to which team members engage in self-disclosure and emotionally support each other. We collected and analyzed politically charged discussions of 13 intergroup teams over four-time points. Our analysis yielded that teams engaged in three categories of social-emotional talk: personal engagement, social connectedness, and constructive engagement. We further identified associated behaviors for each category and discussed how these behaviors are desirable for politically-charged discussions in CSCL.
