The Art of Questioning in English: Using Oral English as a Means of Communication in Developing Attitudes, Interests, and Values. An Instructional Bulletin.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA. Div. of Instructional Planning and Services.
The purpose of this publication is to help teachers identify the levels which children have attained in their thinking as they express their attitudes, values, and behaviors through oral language. Provided are (1) sample questions applicable to various maturity levels to enable teachers to gauge the level of difficulty of their classroom questions, (2) typical responses from children for ascertaining the level of thinking demonstrated by student classroom questions, and (3) suggested questions and responses to illustrate the ways in which affective behaviors, attitudes, and values develop. Teacher questions and sample student responses are given for each of five levels of pupil behavior within the oral skills learning process--(1) receiving, (2) responding, (3) valuing, (4) organizing, and (5) characterizing by a value complex. Also included are a chart illustrating the "meaning typical of commonly used affective terms measured against the taxonomy continuum" (based upon "Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, The Classification of Educational Goals, Handbook II: Affective Domain"), and bibliographies for teachers and pupils.
