Product Description
Socratic Seminars (or "Fish Bowl" Conversations as I like to call them with my students) are fantastic, higher order ways of assessing whether your students are able to understand and react to your class text. These seminars rely on the power of inquiry and allow students to take the lead in their learning and discussion. The only problem? They require a great deal of preparation. Fortunately, I have done the work for you!

• Assignment Directions with step-by-step instructions on how to conduct fishbowls in your classroom
• 5 Discussion Questions for each “Fish Bowl”
• “Fish Bowl” Preparation Sheet
