Are There Any Questions?

by Barry Croom - February 29, 2004

One of the most common problems in instruction is the overuse of the general or “call-out” question. The author proposes that general questioning does not provide the intended diagnostic data about student learning, nor does it engage the student sufficiently in the lesson. This learning module introduces methods that improve the quality of questioning skills in teachers. Emphasis is placed on asking directed questions, and asking questions that access critical thinking skills in students. Teachers are also encouraged to use a sufficient amount of wait time in the question and answer process.
