A Study of the Effects of a Hierarchically-Ordered Questioning Technique on Adolescents' Responses to Short Stories.
Lucking, Robert Alfred
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a hierarchically-ordered questioning technique employed by beginning English teachers on their students' written responses to short stories. The subjects were 84 tenth grade students in three teachers' classes at two Lincoln (Nebraska) high schools. It was concluded that when presented with a hierarchically-ordered questioning technique, students of both high and low reading ability made a significantly broader, more interpretive range of responses to short stories than when they received no instruction of any kind; when presented with this questioning technique, students of both favorable and unfavorable attitudes toward reading made a significantly broader, more interpretive range of responses than when they received no instruction; students of both high and low reading ability made a significantly broader, more interpretive range of responses than when they received instruction from teachers without special training in questioning skills; students of both favorable and unfavorable attitudes toward reading made a broader interpretation of responses than those instructed by teachers without special training; and the responses of males and females were not significantly different.
