A Socratic seminar is a way of teaching founded
by the Greek philosopher Socrates.
Socrates believed that:
students learn best by asking questions.
It is the teacher’s job to moderate the discussion
instead of leading the discussion.
The seminar is to serve as a discussion, not a
lecture. Just like in a casual conversation, no
one begins the conversation, a conversation
begins naturally.
You will use your own questions to get the
discussion going.
Each of you is now to write three questions you
have about the activities you have completed
over the last two days. These should be
questions to which you do not already know
the answer.
