Summary

This paper focuses on the answering and asking of questions in college-level courses and makes suggestions regarding questioning techniques for lecture classes and discussion groups. "Question" (Q) is defined as "any eliciting of an answer (response) regardless of grammatical form. "Answer" (A) is defined as "any response that fulfills the expectation of the question.""Reaction" (R) is defined as "any response that modifies (clarifies, expands) or rates (positively or negatively) a previous statement (question, answer, or another reaction)." It is pointed out that instructors experience difficulty in handling pauses and silence after posing a question, and it is recommended that instructors wait for a response. It is emphasized that it is desirable for an instructor to create a classroom atmosphere that welcomes questions from students. This atmosphere can be evoked by the teacher's asking for questions, listening to the students' questions adequately and answering the questions without belittling the students. (Contains eight references.) (CK)
