Assistant teacher course/Dialectic
The teacher cross-examines a pupil and aims to expose contradictions or inconsistencies in the pupil's propositions. The teacher formulates questions the pupil can easily admit or deny or which require the pupil to admit a contradiction or inconsistency in his propositions. It is the goal of the teacher to make it easy for the pupil to carry forward the dialog with simple answers. Teacher and pupil should agree on the dialog style beforehand and the pupil should readily follow the direction of the teacher.
The handout "Example propositions" contains examples that can be used to test out the socratic method in work groups.
