Questioning at the Elementary Level.
Filippone, Michele
This study examined the types of questions teachers are asking in their classrooms to help promote critical thinking. To do this, 12 teachers representing kindergarten through fifth grade were asked to tape record 3 reading lessons. The lessons were examined and a tally was taken as to the types of questions asked: lower-level or higher-level. The results indicated that teachers are varying the types of questions asked to aid their students' critical thinking. The total percentage of the higher-level questions was significantly higher than the percentage of the lower-level questions. (Contains 2 tables of data and 50 references.) (Author/NKA)
