While argumentation involves weighing up sides, reasoning is more general and although it can involve assessing arguments, it can also involve working through any other sort of problem including in enquiry based learning. Reasoning - and particularly higher order reasoning is valuable learning component and is related to higher order questioning, dialogue, language use, visualisation use, and so on. Teaching pupils to collaborate and reason together through group talk and dialogic teaching is an important consideration - the use of subject based language is an important element of reasoning, mathematical thinking and scientific thinking, and one that is well supported by effective group work.
