Sunday 2:15 - 3:05 PM
What color was the apple? Asking the Right Questions in the Langauge
Chubu University, Japan
Questions are central to any language classroom, yet we rarely stop
to examine their purpose, type or effectiveness. In this workshop, common
classroom questions will be examined, coded, and rated for their effectiveness.
Participants will work through a set of guidelines to help them look more
closely at the questions they most commonly ask of students, and the presenter
will happily field whatever questions may be asked of him.
Chuck Sandy is Professor of English Language and Culture at Chubu
University in Kasuguai, Japan. He is responsible for curriculum development,
test design, and classroom teaching. He has been involved with the
Interchange series since its inception, and is co-author, with Jack C Richards,
of Passages and several other projects forthcoming with Cambridge University
