A little over a year ago, I got caught in my own question. "So, you're going to stay here while the rest of us go to lunch?" I asked a little nugget who was parked underneath a table, refusing to move. "YES." Well. Shoot. My question set both of us up for failure in that moment. To me, it meant "get up". To that student, it meant that staying under the table while we go to lunch was an option - and it wasn't. It backed both of us into a corner (or under a table?). That moment stuck with me. I became far more aware of just how often I was using rhetorical questioning in my classroom. I started to notice other teachers using rhetorical questioning.

Words and concepts such as epistemology, ontology, postmodernism, poststructuralism, metaphysics to mention but few are prevalent in most, if not all, of the scholarly papers you might lay your hands on. Trying to explain such words using a general dictionary will not take you anywhere .This is where a content-specialized platform such as Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy comes in handy.
