The Socratic practice has proven to be one the most innovative and disruptive technique of learning. Since its early beginnings it has empowered people to express and synthesize their own ideas, especially in the way every individual envisions the world. Michael Strong explains this visionary educational method through his own experience as a teacher.
While many teachers use Socratic Circles or Seminars as a way to engage their students in higher order thinking skills, they do not teach the actual Socratic dialogues as they are difficult to teach to Middle School or High School students. This unit takes a small section of Plato’s APOLOGY and makes it accessible to younger students. This is a self-contained unit on The Socratic Method. (GRADES 7+) CCSS are listed on product page - it covers a wide range. $
