This research aimed at analyzing WH-Questions in Pathway to English for 10th grade based on Bloom’s Taxonomy of cognitive domain. The research attempted to answer the following question:
1.What is the most usefrequent of WH-questions contained in Pathway to English textbooks based on Bloom's Taxonomy of cognitive domain? 2.How do the Pathway to English textbooks encourage students to use the various levels of the cognitive domain of Bloom's Taxonomy for critical developing thinking skills ability.?The researcher chose the question as the unit for analysis for this research. The question is defined as a WH-question - in other words – a question beginning with a wh-word and ending with a question mark.

Content analysis technique was carried out to discover the variety in the cognitive level represented by the WH-questions in the textbook according to Bloom's taxonomy. This research also attempted to find out the level in which the WH-questions in the textbook emphasize high-level thinking, and whether the textbook aides students to achieve critical thinking. The questions were gathered, listed, and analyzed according to Bloom's Taxonomy: low order thinking skills: knowledge, comprehension, and application, and high order thinking skills: analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

The researcher then calculated the percentage and frequencies in which each level of cognition appeared for each separate unit and for all ten units combined. The results showed that 163 questions emphasized levels of cognition representing lower order thinking skills, while only 51 questions emphasized the three higher order thinking skills. The questions in the Pathway to English textbook place a great deal of emphasis upon knowledge (42.12%), which is one of the lower order thinking skills
