What Think-Aloud Protocols Can Teach Us about How People Manage Political Information
Unformatted Document Text:  takes place not with the individual as the solitary researcher, but rather in informal discussion among friends. Thus, it would be interesting to use the think-aloud method to study how this sort of reasoning takes place, and how effective it is in learning politics. This work would no doubt easily connect with much work that has been done in the cooperative learning realm (see, for example, Johnson, Johnson and Smith 1998). Conclusion This paper has presented an overview of the think-aloud methodology and what it can teach us about how our students make sense of political issues. While the speculations reached here are certainly not firm ones, they suggest that there may be value to research done along these lines. As I continue with this project and expand it, this method will prove useful in forming a better picture of what political learning looks like, and how we can improve that process. 18

Conclusion
This paper has presented an overview of the think-aloud methodology and what it
can teach us about how our students make sense of political issues. While the
speculations reached here are certainly not firm ones, they suggest that there may be
value to research done along these lines. As I continue with this project and expand it,
this method will prove useful in forming a better picture of what political learning looks
like, and how we can improve that process.
