Given the emphasis on high stakes assessment prevalent in many contemporary classrooms, the powerful nature of questioning is often overlooked. Pertinent issues such as the nature and intention of the questions used in instructional settings, as well as the use of strategies used by the teacher in asking and eliciting responses to create meaningful dialog in the classrooms are central to an effective learning environment. This position paper addresses various types of questions and the importance of their use in today's classrooms. In addition, it offers examples of quality questioning strategies.
