Epic of Gilgamesh Socratic Seminar Lesson Plan
(This is a higher level reading text)
Lesson Plan constructed for students to analyze a key component of Mesopotamian culture. Students will read the excerpt from the Epic of Gilgamesh, then will complete the Socratic Seminar. (For reference on how to implement Socratic Seminar in your class--as well as receive some Seminar Freebies-- please see my Introduction to Socratic Seminar) This activity is great for critical thinking and reflection as well as practice for students in public speaking and composing and elaborating on thought. A great resource for multi-level learning!!
The group process goals, are suggested goals, but they can be modified and replaced with other group goals that would most benefit your individual classes.
