The Critical Role of Students' Questions in Literacy Development.
Becker, Ruth R.
Educational Forum, v64 n3 p261-71 Spr 2000
Preservice teachers acting as participant-observers coded questions of 544 elementary students and 25 teachers. Students asked few questions; one-third were procedural, one-third content focused, and one-fourth involved social functioning. Teachers asked many questions, two-thirds informative. Both groups asked few imaginative or heuristic questions. Teacher responses discouraged inquiry and conceptual development. (SK)
