Socrates, a well-known Greek philosopher, was convinced that the best way to learn was through discussion. A Socratic Seminar will help you learn more about a text by examining it, creating questions about its main points, and talking with your classmates. By doing so, you will have a deeper understanding of what you have read.
This is a great way into to using Socratic seminars in your classroom.
