The teacher's question is the stimulus, the student's answer is the response, and
the evaluation by the teacher is the feedback. Teaching that makes use of
questioning strategies can also be explained using two other views of learning:
individual and social constructivism. □ A thoughtful teacher will vary the use of
teaching techniques depending on the learning goals at that moment. As a
lesson progresses through the learning cycle, the questions a teacher asks and

I suggest that van Fraassen's illuminating discussion of why -questions is best

what-questions such as the following: (1) What are the physical properties of ...

(a) Why did Ms R. kill Mr R.? (b) Why did Ms R. kill Mr R.? (c) Why did Ms R. kill
Mr R.? The emphasis makes it clear that each question is a request for different
information, and each presumably reflects differences in knowledge. Thus, the
first presumes that Mr R.'s being killed needs no explanation, only why it was Ms
R. instead of some other person “who done it” which needs explanation; the
second question presupposes that what needs explanation is why what Ms R. did
to Mr R.

Every Kid's Science Questions Explained (Workman, 1999) and Catherine
Ripley's Why?: The Best Ever Question and Answer Book about Nature, Science
and the World around You (Firefly, 2001) are similar, but not as comprehensive in
