Product Description
If you've never led a Socratic Seminar, prepare to be blown away. They are my favorite method of teaching and assessing. They require time to prepare and students to hold themselves accountable, but they are always impressive when given their proper time.

Seminars work best when focused on controversial texts--and what is more controversial than a debate about reparations for African-Americans?

This activity is based on Ta-Nahesi Coates' famous Atlantic article, "The Case for Reparations," which you can read in full here.
It's a complex and long article, so I heavily abridged it for my students. You can download the abridged version here for free.

This download includes:
--Instructions on how to run a Socratic Seminar
--The description of the activity for students
--A list of sentence stems to help stimulate student discussion
--Guiding questions for the seminar, with room for students to take notes
--Reflection sheet for students post-discussion
--Rubric for grading
