SALAZAR PARRA, Juan. Verbal Strategies of courtesy in argumentative interactions ocurring in schoolcontexts. Alpha [online]. 2008, n.27, pp. 77-92. ISSN 0718-2201. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012008000200006.
Oral argumentation supposes different domains, like strategies of courtesy, that make the interactive relationships easier (attenuating imposition and promoting agreement). This is why we pretend to detect the argumentation stages in the interaction and the courtesy strategies thatregulate a guided situation and a sponta-neous one. Also, we present key concepts about argumentation study, stages and courtesy strategies that, following Cros (2003), must be used in an oral discussion in the classroom. Ultimately, we can say that students present general problems as concessions and use cooperation strategies in both situations, they develop an extended arguing stage, planning thesis and arguments, utilizing courtesy strategies that minimize the threatening acts and avoid coercing the interlocutor. Finally, just in guided interaction we find the closing stage that finishes the initial disagreement.
