Use higher order thinking skills to assess students' knowledge of the novel, The Great Gatsby, at the completion of the reading by using an interactive Socratic Seminar format.
This document contains everything you need--guidelines for the students on how to behave during a Socratic Seminar and a list of critical thinking/thematic questions that the students must prepare ahead of time before arriving on Socratic Seminar day.
This is a much easier way for YOU the teacher to grade an assessment, but it is a much deeper thinking process for the students. It's a win-win on both sides!
The document is in WORD format so that you can add in your own deadlines and date of the Socratic Seminar.
Questions are adapted from the NEA's Big Read.
