Abstract

The aim of this study is to discuss the efficacy of questioning techniques of the teachers in the classroom. Proper questioning techniques are important in the teaching and learning process. Proper questioning techniques will make it easier for teachers to get feedback from students whether or not they understand the subject. This article describes some of the questioning techniques that a teacher needs to know to possess in classroom teaching and learning sessions such as attention, suitable voice. Pause, question content, and distribution of questions. This is important for enhancing student motivation and promoting positive, critical, and creative thinking among students and to improve the teaching and learning process in the classroom.
