PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This document provides a step-by-step guide to hosting a classroom Socratic Seminar. In a typical debate, students would be separated into two opposing teams. A Socratic Seminar is a format of discussion that allows students to face each other and ask questions about a text or topic. This kind of discussion encourages students to voice their own opinions and make connections among current events, personal experiences, and classroom texts.

The structure of the discussion engages students in a conversation with each other. This way, the teacher is free to stand back and observe student participation and conduct, and the students become independent thinkers and discussion leaders. My own students love these discussions because they can direct the conversation and make their own connections.

In this packet, you will find step-by-step teacher guidelines and a student self-evaluation to complete after the discussion.
