This complete unit plan teaches students the keys to communication with the acronym PHOGA and reinforces learning with a TED Talk on communication. Students hold one teacher-led discussion & four student-led Socratic Seminars. Students learn how to ask higher-level questions and how to evaluate their own communication skills.

Student-Led Socratic Seminar Topics Include:
• Thought-provoking quotes from Machiavelli’s The Prince
• Odysseus’s refusal of Kalypso’s offer of immortality
• Chimamanda Adichie’s TED Talk on stereotypes
• The Pledge of Allegiance and its history

As a bonus, text and questions from Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography and Aesop’s Fable The Dog and the Wolf are included for teachers who want to switch out a text or extend the unit.
