Instructional Effect on Question Asking Behavior of Prospective Peace Corps Science and Mathematics Volunteer Teachers.
Adhikary, Poorna Kanta
The effect of an instructional program which was developed to introduce questioning techniques to prospective teachers was investigated. Thirty prospective Peace Corp science and mathematics teachers were observed during their training program peer-teaching sessions. After premeasure observation, the experimental group received instruction on classifying teacher questions and on the use of different types of questions, while the control group received no instruction. Both groups were then observed again. Results showed that question-asking behavior could be changed through instruction. The group receiving instruction asked more convergent, divergent, evaluative, and total questions, and fewer cognitive-memory and managerial questions, in their peer-teaching when compared to the control group.
