SOCRATIC SEMINAR, VISUAL AND INTERPRETIVE NOTE-TAKING - COMBINED

This self-contained unit may be used with any text.

I have used Socratic Seminars for a couple of years now and find them to be a fantastic way to get students engaged with the material. My students have always enjoyed participating in them and ask why they cannot do them more often! This unit is easily adaptable to any text. THIS UNIT HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH MANY NEW FEATURES!

In the original file you will find:
EIGHT pre-seminar cards
→TWO post-seminar cards
→My instructions to my students
→An example of a student markup
→A copy of the pre-seminar questions as a PDF

In the new file you will find:
THREE pre-seminar cards (as task cards)
→THREE pre-seminar cards (in Google Slides)
→Instructions to my students (in Google Slides)
→New teacher instructions - the new way I do Socratic Seminars
→Student examples of answers to the three slides
→Student examples of Visual Notetaking during the Socratic Seminar (five pages)→TWO new examples of student markups - Interpretive Note-taking (six pages)

❤️BONUS: New examples using the first Chapters of Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra (PDF)
❤️BONUS:
The first four Chapters of Zarathustra are included (a separate PDF). These Chapters work extremely well in my classes. I decided to include them so that the product is complete and ready to go if needed. Furthermore, this section of Zarathustra covers some very interesting ideas including environmentalism, religion, the Superman, and more. If you would like more information on Zarathustra I have a unit on TpT here:

TEACHER TIP:
You don’t need to teach entire works, just short excerpts of the Great Books, to engage students in complex, higher-order thinking and other skills deemed essential in the new CCSS guidelines.


The ELA Common Core State Standards require students to learn how to read texts carefully:

“As a natural outgrowth of meeting the charge to define college and career readiness, the Standards also lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century. Indeed, the skills and understandings students are expected to demonstrate have wide applicability outside the classroom or workplace. Students who meet the Standards readily undertake the close, attentive reading that is at the heart of understanding and enjoying complex works of literature. They habitually perform the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information available today in print and digitally. They actively seek the wide, deep, and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that builds knowledge, enlarges experience, and broadens worldviews. They reflexively demonstrate the cogent reasoning and use of evidence that is essential to both private deliberation and responsible citizenship in a democratic republic. In short, students who meet the Standards develop the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language.” English Language Arts Standards | Home | English Language Arts
