Limited Capacity seats available

Socratic Seminars positively change students' lives. Through student-led discussions and reflection, students drastically improve their comprehension of complex texts. And, perhaps most importantly, they experience how their empowered voices impact their lives and the world around them.

This session will engage all participants in:
1. Learning activities that successfully prepare and motivate students to fully engage in powerful Socratic Seminars.
2. Assessment and scaffolding for successful Socratic Seminars
3. A social-studies focused Socratic Seminar (with inner/outer circle/"cyber circle").
