Interested in taking your students into higher level thinking skills? Socratic Seminar is the perfect way to do it. Using open-ended questioning and conversation, students are encouraged to think about issues, thoughts and ideas. One of the greatest strengths of seminar is that students constantly return to the text, re-read it and reference the text in their discussion. This method of teaching is highly engaging and interactive and you will love the writing you get when the kiddos do a critical reflection!
