Teacher Questioning Behavior and Student Learning: What Research Says to Teachers.
Ellis, Kathleen
This paper addresses the question, "What teacher questioning behaviors influence student learning?" It synthesizes research findings, explicates their prescriptive implications, and presents behavioral guidelines for teachers who wish to make informed choices about improving classroom questioning behavior. The paper examines and synthesizes research findings that focus on the following questions: (1) Does question-asking improve student learning? (2) What types of questions are most effective in the classroom? (3) What questioning behaviors are related to increases in student learning? (4) What questioning behaviors interfere with student learning? The paper also offers a theoretically based questioning strategy designed to promote student learning and a discussion of future directions for research from a communication perspective. A figure for a questioning model is included; a 49-item bibliography is attached. (Author/SAM)
