by Robertsson, Joacim; Bruneflod, Tobias

Abstract (Summary)
This report presents the use of questions by both teachers and students in chemistry class. Both students and teachers have been observed during 24 lessons, both theoretical and practical. In addition, interviews have been made with the teachers and the students have answered a questionnaire. The result show that a high number of questions are asked, more than one per minute and that both teachers and students ask the same amount of questions. This contradicts earlier findings were teachers questions dominate. Another significant finding is that the distribution of questions over time is very similar between teachers and students. In a comparison between different teachers the conclusions can be drawn that the amount of questions asked in a classroom correlates more to the specific teacher than any other factor. This study also shows that both teachers and students are satisfied with the dialog and that the socio-cultural theories about dialogue base teaching have been assimilated into the Swedish classroom.
