Using Socratic Seminar to Meet College and Career Ready Standards

Using Socratic Seminar to Meet College and Career Ready Standards for Listening, Thinking, Speaking, Reading, and Writing – Phase 2

Socratic Seminar is a deep analysis of works of quality and substance by a group of students facilitated by a teacher. A text can be a piece of literature, informative text, such as social studies and science, historical documents, or a piece of art or music. The main goal is for students to build conceptual understanding of the texts and ideas by asking questions, citing evidence, and conversing with each other to make meaning. Often, seminars are followed with a reflective piece of writing. Effectively implemented, Socratic seminars enhance reading comprehension, speaking, listening and writing skills; a perfect vehicle for teaching the Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards.

This one day session will include:
• Explanation of Socratic seminar
• Participation in a group seminar
• Discussion regarding how to select seminar readings and develop seminar questions for classes at all levels
• Development of and participation in mini-seminars
• A packet of materials, a book, and resources

You will receive and use the following book in the session:
Teaching Critical Thinking – Using Seminars for 21st Century Literacy by Terry Roberts and Laura Billings
