Included in this product is a six-page flip book and EDITABLE Word document.
Introduce this Socratic Seminar flip book to your students and watch their next discussion soar! Print the flip book off front-to-back, and you have a foldable students won't be able to live without. Once glued or taped inside of an Interactive Notebook, this becomes an invaluable reference tool for students. Students will receive information on the theory behind Socratic Seminars; how to write different levels of questions; a page of sentence starters to help them introduce a thought, bring in a reluctant speaker, or change topics effectively; how to rate their participation in the inner circle dialogue; how to rate a peer and the overall discussion as an outer circle observer; and how to reflect upon the entire class's participation and the discussion as a whole.
The flip book includes tabs covering:
Guidelines for Socratic Dialogue
Socratic Seminar Question Writing
Rules / Questioning Cheat Sheet
Inner Circle guidelines and rubric
Outer Circle guidelines and rubric
Socratic Seminar Reflection
These same resources are also available as full page handouts in an EDITABLE Word document. This allows you to modify information as needed, print off and post Socratic Seminar rules, or print off rubrics for inner and outer circles for use throughout the year.
Your students will love the ownership and engagement Socratic Seminars provide!
