Why-Questions in Classroom Discourse.
Wintergerst, Ann C.
College ESL, v3 n1 p70-79 Jul 1993
"Why" questions used by teachers and students were examined to determine whether they produced words or phrases (short answers) or extended student responses (long answers) in 12 English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses. Results indicated that both teachers and students ask few why questions, which could be better used in ESL classes to elicit discussion. (Contains seven references.) (LB)
