“What’s in a question, you ask?” said John Dewey. “Everything. It is evoking stimulating response or stultifying inquiry. It is, in essence, the very core of teaching”. This article outlines research that was undertaken with primary student teachers at the University of Gloucestershire, focusing on the development of their ability to deploy an appropriate number of carefully chosen questions in the teaching of primary science, adopting elements of an action research methodology to enable engagement with evidence-based evaluation of practice.
