Another one of my awesome Socratic seminars. Save yourself some time and purchase this excellent critic thinking activity. Get your students talking and taking your historical content to more depth and complexity.
The Socratic seminar is a formal discussion, based on a text, in which the leader asks open-ended questions. Within the context of the discussion, students listen closely to the comments of others, thinking critically for themselves, and articulate their own thoughts and their responses to the thoughts of others. They learn to work cooperatively and to question intelligently and civilly.
