It is hard to hold conversations with students and make sure that they speak using content information and Socratic Seminars are time consuming and never really seem to get the results you need. Socratic S.I.T.'s (Speaking Intelligently Together) are a quick and easy way to see if students are using content vocabulary and information accurately. By the teacher's setting the pace of the conversation, students still have structure, but getting rid of the requirements of pre-questioning allows the teacher to get authentic information about student capabilities.
