Description This paper presents the results of an investigation of the function of teacher questioning in selected humanities subjects at the lower secondary school. The main aim of the research was to establish the functions performed by teacher questioning in educational communication. Further we were interested in the kinds of questions teachers use in selected subjects, how teachers use open and closed questions, and how questions differ in terms of the cognitive demand factor. This is followed by a qualitative part that refers to mechanisms pupils may employ when replying to teacher questions in the effort to close in on the teacher’s interpretational framework and thus achieve correct answers.
