Literature Questions Children Want To Discuss: What Teachers and Students Learned in a Second-Grade Classroom.
Commeyras, Michelle; Sumner, Georgiana
Elementary School Journal, v99 n2 p129-52 Nov 1998

Data showed that students were eager to pose questions that addressed what they needed and wanted to understand about literature and life and that teachers have a tendency to impose their own ideas about what constitutes a "good" discussion question.
