A Socratic Seminar is a great way for students to engage in critical thinking and utilize their listening and speaking skills. My students get so excited when I mention we are having a Socratic Seminar!
The package includes....
-Rules for a Socratic Seminar
-An outline for students to prepare the day before (including questions based on The Outsiders)
-Peer Evaluation (students pair up with a partner and keep track of their contributions during the seminar --they also give feedback)
