The subject of teacher questions in the classroom has for long been of interest to educationalists. This paper presents a review of some of the research studies which have been carried out in relation to teacher questioning behaviours. This review represents a sample of the types of investigation which have been conducted, and the conclusions which have been reached. It is argued that while such investigations have contributed to our knowledge of classroom discourse, there is a need for more specific research into the use of teacher questions in relation to age and ability of pupils, and subject content being taught.
