Making Classroom Questions From A Linguistic Perspective

Y. Kaneso

Toyo Gakuen University, Japan

One of the key elements to making reading in an English language class more interesting is the teacher’s questions. However, the making of such questions has not been fully explored from a linguistic perspective. This presentation, therefore, discusses ways to create questions on the basis of linguistic evidence in English textbooks. It begins with a brief review of research on teacher’s questions based on junior high school English textbooks and shows that the making of teacher’s questions is rooted in linguistic knowledge. It then applies the findings to a reading text used at college beginners level.
