Are There any Questions? One Teacher's View of Students and their Questions in a Fourth-Grade Classroom.
Beck, Terence A.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v14 n8 p871-86 Nov 1998
Examined a classroom in which fourth graders' questions dominated the discourse, investigating how the teacher reduced forces that discourage student questions in instruction. Observation and interview data indicated that the teacher respected her students as well-intentioned learners, viewed the assumptions revealed by student questions as steps to the curriculum, and viewed student questions through the lens of potential.
