The Socratic Method: Using Meaningful Conversations in the Classroom
Curriculum Instruction and Assessment
Discussion, now more than ever, is a valuable inquiry based practice allowing students to make meaning from their learning. This collaborative practice yields higher level thinking, increases student engagement, and reinforces powerful social-emotional skills. As teachers, we build safe classroom cultures cultivated in curiosity through the Socratic method. Rich classroom discussions doesn't just happen. They develop when teachers utilize the strategies found in the Socratic method.
