Running A Socratic Seminar

 

Include more discussion and critical thinking with Socratic seminars. Requiring more prep and practice than an everyday discussion, Socratic seminars are a great strategy for embedding multiple skills. Students are pushed to research, craft and revise responses, and then discuss with their peers. Socratic seminars are also a great student-driven way to review information before a summative exam.
