Being the mother of a young child, my day starts with questions that are shot my way the moment my kid wakes up. “Why should I go to school?”, “What have you packed for lunch today?”, “When will you come to pick me up?”, “Who is going to play with me?”, and many more, in no particular order.
Does that give you a sense of where I am heading? Well, stop and take a moment to think about the number of questions you answer or ask every day. Be it your personal or professional life, conveying and understanding a message becomes such a cumbersome task without questions. Questions can open doors to the right knowledge. They are absolutely irreplaceable.
When working on questions, we often begin with what and then progress to who, where, when, and why. These questions are commonly known as Wh questions. These also include some more types like whom, which, whose, and how – essentially any questions starting with WH.
When a teacher or a parent asks a Wh question like “What are you doing?”, “Who did this?” or “Where is this?” the student or child is expected to give a logical and complex response than just a yes or no. This helps enhance their communication and reasoning abilities.
Wh questions are highly beneficial in the context of education and infact, at any place where questions need to be asked. Using Wh questions in learning and assessment material could significantly improve the verbal and logical reasoning abilities of your learners. For young kids, it even helps enhance vocabulary. Wh questions help learners to collect relevant knowledge and demonstrate what they already know. Learners take time to contemplate what they know before they respond. They could help be helpful in multiple scenarios, since there is a specific usage for each type of Wh question, like,
- What is used to ask about things or objects
- Who and Whom are used to ask about people
- Where is used to ask about places
- When is used to ask about time
- Why is used to ask about causes
- Which is used to ask about choices
- Whose is used to ask about possession
- How is used to ask about process
