How to Ask the Right Questions.
Blosser, Patricia E.
This booklet provides methods that teachers can use to analyze questioning techniques and suggests ways that teachers can develop variety in the type of questions they ask. Both Bloom's "Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, Handbook I: Cognitive Domain," and the Question Category System for Science are discussed as systems for classifying questions. Suggestions are given for recognizing question types and for devising open questions to use in the classroom. The importance of pausing for a sufficient amount of time between questions is also discussed. A selected bibliography is included. (MH)
