Socratic Seminars in English Class
What is a Socratic Seminar? Discover this type of discussion and it functions. Split the class into two groups with Group A sitting in an inner circle and Group B in an outer circle. Each person in Group B is assigned to a person in Group A to keep track of their partners' comments and responses. Prior to conducting the seminar, practice with your class how to prepare open-ended questions about a text or issue.
