Classical Pedagogy 2 (Andrew Kern)
The method or mode of teaching called "Socratic Teaching" seems to be interpreted and implemented in various ways. Some think that just asking questions of students in a loosely-led discussion is "Socratic." Others think that when the teacher pretends not to know anything, "playing dumb" is a chief component of Socratic teaching. Andrew Kern has some specific ideas for what he thinks Socratic teaching should be. What do you think of his ideas? Are there any other legitimate ways of teaching Socratically that you would mention?
