    I teach in a field-based teacher preparation program. We specifically
    target questioning techniques and hands-on, inquiry based teaching/learning
    with our intern/resident pre-service teachers. My personal experience in
    both K-12 and in higher education indicate that it takes most students
    several months to grasp the idea of "thinking" and problem-solving
    answering as opposed to objective type answering. Five sample questions
    would not be enough experience. Glenda
