Product Description
Socratic seminar is a way to put students at the helm of the discussion. This allows for an engaging, student-facilitated seminar, which meets many CCSS standards for English classes, grades 7-12. Students are expected to come prepared with annotated texts and text-dependent questions. They work towards a deeper understanding of a text through thought-provoking connections to self, other texts, and the world. I like to use this document as a handout and then let students facilitate a discussion about what guidelines they want to have for their seminars. For instance, many students like for classmates to raise their hand once a speaker has finished speaking, as opposed when a classmate is speaking.

Please also see my seminar recorder sheets for a helpful way to document seminar discussions.
