Questions must be guided by definite aims. They should be asked:
-- to test a student's preparation (Find out if students did their homework.)
-- arouse interest (Bring them into the lesson by motivating them.)
-- to develop insights (Cause them to see new relationships.)
-- to develop ideals, attitudes and appreciations (Ask questions that cause students to get more than knowledge in the classroom.)
-- to strengthen learning (Review and summarize what is taught.)
-- to stimulate critical thinking (Develop a questioning attitude.)
-- to test achievement of objectives (Check to see if what has been taught "sank in.")
