Sample text

For example, Lemke (1990) sees the student’s job of understanding the teacher’s explanations as one of identifying thematic patterns and grasping semantic relationships between words. This may give undue importance to language, especially in the case of science where we see much meaning being made through acting on things and doing things with them. Others, particularly Edwards and Mercer (1987) have been clear that the language in the classroom is by no means everything that matters – ‘Overt messages, things actually said, are only a small part of communication’ (Edwards and Mercer 1987: 160).

The art and science of asking questions are not taught in schools. (Postman and Weitgartner, Teaching as a subversive activity, quoted in Aicken 1984: 112) Recent comment has focused attention on questioning skills in the classroom and laboratory. Ofsted raised the issue of questioning skills in the report Subjects and Standards, which reported the main findings from the inspections in 1994–5. The section devoted to effective teaching highlights the use of questions as a key issue for schools: In order to provide effective teaching for pupils of all abilities, teachers should consider whether enough questions, oral or written, are open, so that pupils can respond at length and in depth, according to their abilities.

Questioning is a powerful way of communicating with learners and plays a key role in the development of questioning minds in pupils, which is something teachers of science must surely value highly. The questions you ask say a great deal about you as a science teacher. Your view of science and teaching, and the extent of your concern for and interest in learners, will have a profound influence on the questions you ask and how you ask them. It is personally challenging to critically examine and develop practice, but by doing so, pupil achievement and their attitudes to science can be greatly improved.
