Focus Questions: The Engines of Lessons.
Killoran, James
Social Science Record, v24 n1 p38-41 Spr 1987
Argues that teachers can easily structure social studies lessons to enhance students' thinking skills by using carefully structured focus questions.

Included are two model secondary level government lessons. (JDH)
