BESIDES THE GOOGLE SLIDES COMPONENT, THIS PRODUCT IS IDENTICAL TO MY PRODUCT: SOCRATES AS GADFLY Please email me if you purchased the print version already but would prefer the print and interactive version of this product.

PHILOSOPHY BITES are small sections of philosophical texts.

  • This lesson can be stand-alone or it could be used alongside a number of novels.

  • This product tests reading comprehension!

⛎A small excerpt (220 words) from Plato’s Apology.

⛎ A breakdown of the excerpt sentence by sentence with writing prompts.  

⛎ There are a total of 15 questions.

There are FIVE pages of answers and teacher notes!

⛎ Answers are provided to the questions.  

⛎ Instructions for students on how to engage in close textual analysis.

⛎ A link to the questions for students to use interactively through Classroom™ or other online programs.  

⛎ Instructions for students when using the interactive version.

⛎ Information on Google Slides™ for teachers and students.

⛎A small amount of information on Socrates, the Apology, and political philosophy


The idea for these assignments was suggested to me by a colleague.  During my lectures to first-year University students, I often attempt to do too much during class and the students become confused and frustrated.  He reminded me of a quotation from Virginia Woolf:

“I should never be able to fulfill what is, I understand, the first duty of a lecturer – to hand you after an hour's discourse a nugget of pure truth to wrap up between the pages of your notebooks and keep on the mantelpiece forever.”

The sections of text in PHILOSOPHY BITES are challenging yet accessible and are a great way to introduce students to philosophical concepts.  I have created these PHILOSOPHY BITES as a way to help students engage in critical thinking and to introduce them to close textual analysis.
