This book is about using conflict to create student involvement in learning, intellectual curiosity, intrinsic motivation to learn, higher achievement and higher level reasoning. Conflict is the heart of all drama, a major tool for capturing interest and attention. If students are to learn and master the procedures and skills required for managing intellectual conflicts constructively, they must do so in the classroom.
