Questioning and Teaching. A Manual of Practice.
Dillon, J. T.
Questions and questioning play a major role in both formal and informal educative processes. They are the means by which a child expresses the desire to understand the world outside and they subsequently become the means by which a teacher assesses whether or not a child has satisfactorily assimilated something. This book considers questions from the point of view of the questioner and that of the person being questioned and considers pupil and teacher in both of these roles. The book is grounded in theory, research and practice and is informed by the theory of, and research into questions in other fields including psychotherapy, criminal interrogation, and computer science.
