Product Description

Students feel confident with this semi-structured approach to class discussions. This purchase includes a 20 slide PowerPoint that introduces students to the Socratic method for the purpose of discussing a text, a student discussion prep sheet and reflection, and detailed instructions for the teacher on how to facilitate a class discussion. The PowerPoint also includes theme questions to help students expand their perspective on the text, or to extend a discussion that needs to delve a bit deeper.

Some of my most memorable teaching moments come from class discussions. Students are often better able to put the abstract concepts of a text into words that other students can understand better than I can. I'm always amazed when students can come to a consensus on a tough issue or bring in a current event or popular movie or song that relates to the book as well.
