A Case Study of Teacher Questioning in English Class in Chinese High School
As one of the teaching activities, questioning in class is always a central topic for research. Teachers raise questions constantly in class in order to provoke students’ interest in the context, which will create a favorable atmosphere. In English teaching, the importance of classroom interaction is obvious. Among the various kinds of interactions, teacher questioning and student answering is the most important one, however it is difficult for teachers to decide on the questions they should ask and the way they should phrase them. Based on the observation of reading classes of a key middle school, related suggestions are given to English teachers on how to achieve better questioning effects.
