Indeed, Socrates posited over 2500 years ago that having students think for themselves by means of rigorously thoughtful dialogue was more desirable than filling their heads with the "right" answers for later regurgitation. The Q&A format of Ask the Teacher presents the teacher candidate the opportunity to confront his or her ambiguity concerning questions dealing with foundations, educational psychology, curriculum, methodology, or family involvement in the pedagogical process. Questioning and the responding to common questions faced by the practitioner every day in the diverse classroom, creates a form of dialogue, which gives a "voice" that can enhance the understanding of ideas, issues and values.

Using a question-and-answer format, this book presents the teacher candidate with the opportunity to confront issues dealing with foundations, educational psychology, curriculum, methodology, or family involvement in the teaching process. Teacher candidates learn to reflect on classroom problems when they are confronted with curiosity, confusion, or uncertainty. The replies to those queries, within this book, are based on educational theory and practice that attempt to resolve various educational issues by indicating a variety of solution sets. Because its purpose is to stimulate reflective thought, Ask the Teacher is not for the passive reader but for one who desires a contextual intellectual discourse-a dialogue that promotes a genuinely reflective understanding of the diverse classroom in the 21st Century.
