Almost half of the student teachers posed questions that were either inappropriate or presupposed that the pupils would know the answer.

This study had two purposes. First, it aimed to provide an analysis of the types of questions teachers use to promote thinking, problem-solving and reasoning in their students. Second, it aimed to provide an analysis of the types of discourse the students used to problem-solve and reason during their small group discussions. The results showed that the teachers used a range of questioning strategies from those that probed for information and challenged children’s perspectives to those higher-level questions that required children to provide reasons, make connections or think meta-cognitively.
