Abstract [en]

This report discusses analysis of data collected as participant observer during doctoral work (Gade, 2006), examined more recently with Engeström’s version of activity theory (Gade, 2014). The empirical data under consideration refer to two particular group tasks conducted by two experienced teachers at the commencement of the academic term, with all students assembled into small groups. I consider the conduct of these tasks as an Activity setting (Tharp & Gallimore, 1988), in realising which teachers exemplified the pedagogical category of Joint productive activity (Dalton & Tharp, 2002). These two constructs draw on cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) perspectives which explain how human consciousness and personality develop in goal-directed activities.
