Product Description

I created this Accountable Talk Socratic Seminar Guide to support our Socratic Seminars. We’ve been doing Socratic Seminars for a while, but I wanted to add accountability and structure to the traditional format for my students. This also helps me with a manageable way to give a grade.

Side one is used for the inner circle "talkers." In order to encourage students to vary their responses (rather than simply agreeing with everything), students in the inner circle are expected to participate with a minimum of two different talk stems from the guide. Students can keep track of their contributions by coloring in the emojis for the talk stems they use.

In the outer circle, the students are expected to listen to the discussion and record the contributions of their partners on the accountability partner side of the guide.
