Socrates believed that enabling students to think for themselves was more important than filling their heads with 'right" answers. In a Socratic Circle, participants seek deeper understanding of complex ideas through rigorously thoughtful dialogue, rather than by memorizing bits of information or meeting arbitrary demands for ‘coverage’.
A Socratic Circle fosters active learning as participants explore and evaluate the ideas, issues, and values in a particular text.
Use this guide and document templates to foster dialogue in your classroom. This set includes: two versions of Socratic Circle template, one for grades 6-9 and one for grades 8-12, an in depth teachers guide with visuals to explain the process of the Socratic Circle, Follow-Up activity ideas, and much more!
