Teacher Strategies of Questioning for Eliciting Selected Cognitive Student Responses.
Clegg, Ambrose A., Jr.; And Others
Recent studies, showing that the majority of questions asked by teachers elicit little more than memorized answers from students, indicate that more effective teacher training in questioning techniques is needed. Teachers may be trained in the inquiry method, which necessitates that a student learn how to ask appropriate 'why' questions, or he may be trained in a very different approach to elict behaviors from students that are essential for the student to accomplish his cognitive task. As another alternative, teachers may also be trained to use certain verbal cues in their questions (the "grammar of the interrogative") which indicate the kind of cognitive behavior needed by the student to answer appropriately.
