This is a complete product to take you, and your students, through a Socratic Seminar type lesson, which I call a "historical dialogue."

According to the administrator who observed me during it, it is "The textbook definition of teacher facilitation of a student-driven lesson."


  1. Explanation of a historical dialogue including rules and expectations, along with the opportunity for students to create their own rules, and sentence starters.
  2. An inquiry question, and graphic organizers for students to catalog the evidence that best supports their claims, argue against their claims, and interesting or puzzling excerpts.
  3. A T-Chart to compare and contrast the paleolithic and neolithic eras.
  4. A self-reflection sheet for students to complete after the historical dialogue, along with a peer-evaluation.
  5. A student choice project to demonstrate their growth before, during, and after the historical dialogue, along with a rubric.
  6. 7 historical documents, and guiding questions for students to analyze in preparation for the historical dialogue.
