Asking and Answering in ESL Classes.
White, Joanna; Lightbrown, Patsy M.
Canadian Modern Language Review, v40 n2 p228-44 Jan 1984
Examines teacher-student questioning exchanges and finds that students are rarely given sufficient time to formulate their answers before the teacher repeats, rephrases, or goes on to another student. Discusses some reasons for this behavior and suggests ways of making question asking and answering a more valuable learning experience in the second language classroom. (EKN)
