This brief handout will allow students to prepare, in advance, quotations, questions, and comments for an upcoming Socratic Seminar and class discussion. The top of the handout allows for the student to copy down teacher-provided "focus questions" and provides space for the student to provide their own information as well. Though simple, this brief resource has boosted student confidence and the amount of discussion I have seen in my classroom as students are focusing more on listening rather than worrying about what they are going to say.
