The Moral Teacher: Advocate or Devil's Advocate?
Gerety, Tom
Liberal Education, v85 n1 p34-37 Win 1999
Two college teaching styles are compared: that of the advocate, who teaches what he believes in passionately, and that of the devil's advocate, who tries to teach either against what he believes or against what he suspects his students will likely believe. Both are seen as important to the liveliness and rigor of a college curriculum. (MSE)
