Socratic Seminars (or "Fish Bowl" Conversations as I like to call them with my students) are fantastic, higher order ways of assessing whether your students are able to understand and react to your class texts. These seminars rely on the power of inquiry and allow students to take the lead in their learning and discussion. The only problem? They require a great deal of preparation. Fortunately, I did the work for you!
This packet includes everything you need to conduct a structured and formal set of Socratic Seminars in your classroom for Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Black Cat" - NO PREPARATION NEEDED!
