Improving Student Teachers' Strategies for Asking a Range of Both High and Low Level Questions through Video Evaluations.
The study reported here was conducted to improve student teachers' skills in asking questions capable of eliciting learner responses on a higher cognitive level. Participants, senior student teachers, were chosen randomly for video evaluations of their question asking strategies. Following video recording of lessons, the student teachers performed self-evaluations. Trained observers and college coordinators used an observation form which recognized the levels, types, and techniques of questions that senior student teachers were utilizing; data were collected after each observation; and feedback was provided. Results indicate that subsequent to video evaluation, student teachers' question asking skills improved in the following areas: skill in asking both low- and high-level questions; techniques when asking questions; and abilities to ask questions which would encourage higher level thinking. Appended are: a student teacher's needs assessment form (which includes concerns about questioning skills); an observation form; a supervising teacher's questionnaire; and an evaluation checklist.
