Questioning Behavior That Facilitates Cognitive Development in Reading.
Smith, Charles W.
This paper discusses questioning patterns that can be used by teachers to facilitate cognitive development in reading instruction. The questioning patterns suggested are intended to include the kinds of questions used on worksheets, tests, and in class projects. The opinions of various authors who stress the importance of teacher questioning patterns are reviewed. Among these authorities are Harris and Smith, who emphasize the importance of teacher questioning in developing critical thinking; Guszak, who indicates that teachers overemphasize recall thinking; and Taba, who indicates that teachers give little thought to the classroom questions they ask and the sequencing of such questions in instruction. A brief description of each of the six levels of thinking in the cognitive domain are listed--knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Also included is a reading passage with sample questions and representative answers. (WR)
