Typical questions of pupils at primary school level

Main Article Content

Karolina Smejkalova


This work deals with the questions of pupils at the first level of elementary school. The aim of this text is to theoretically analyse some questions of pupils observed during the lessons and to categorise them according to their frequency of occurrence and to assign them to a specific typology defined by the theoretical pedagogy. Some previous research on pupils' questions showed that most students ask merely general questions of organisational character, which is what we aim to explore in this paper. These general questions also play a role during the class but they do not reflect the current scenario of learning activities with pupils. In the last part of this paper, we provide a basis for new proposals that could help intensifying pupils’ questions during the courses and to contribute to their better use and work with them in class.


Keywords: Pupil questions, types of pupil questions, frequency of occurrence, relationship of pupils’ questions to learning goals and learning tasks.
