Learning about Instructing: Questioning Strategies.
Lowery, Lawrence F.
This self-instructive workbook focuses upon teacher-initiated questioning strategies and the relationship of the strategies to students' thinking. It utilizes written materials, audiotapes, videotapes, and students in the classroom. The goals of the workbook are to enable the teacher to (1) identify and classify types of questions in terms of their potential effect on students' thinking; (2) use each type of question strategically so as to facilitate the development of students' thinking processes; and (3) assess themselves in terms of knowledge and ability related to questioning strategies. The workbook is supplemented by a program and support system which includes instruction, experiences for practice, and individual conferences. The guide defines types of teacher-initiated questions and types of written questions and explains how to make a statistical profile of scored questions. It also discusses the classification of questions from a transcript and questions from an audiotape. In addition, it helps the teacher in assessing questioning strategies, in relating types of questions to instructional goals, in sequencing questions strategically, and in matching types of questions to learning processes. It also provides a review of research on the use of questions in instruction and a bibliography. (BD)
