Am I Asking the Right Questions? (What Teachers Ask of Children)
Allerton, Mark
International Journal of Early Childhood, v25 n1 p42-48 1992
Discusses importance of adults asking questions that encourage development of children's expressive language. Compared the responses of 4- to 5-year olds asked only closed questions with those of children asked verbal reflective questions in which the questioner restated part of the child's previous utterance. Found that closed questions generated more total responses, but fewer extending responses, than reflective questions. (AC)
